Tick Tock

The card features The Cuckoo Clock by Ikes World, it was an image I chose recently after winning some of Ikes images.

I have a very soft spot for Cuckoo Clocks, grew up in a house that had one, and my husband bought me one years and years ago.

Coloured with Copic pens, fussy cut, layered onto black cardstock and re fussy cut leaving a border, helps the clock pop.  Some Olive Gold ink has been swiped across the leaves to give them a sheen. The sentiment is one of mine.  The papers are from Close to my Heart.
