Take Time for a Couple of Challenges

My friend Joanne is having a blogaversary celebration this week, complete with a challenge and a prize, so I thought I'd play along.

She lists a few options of things to use/do on your card, and the rule is you must choose at least three.
I used:
  1. kraft cardstock
  2. mixed sewing (straight and zig-zag stitches)
  3. ledger paper (mine is actually crossword paper)

I hadn't inked up this Take Time a la mode yet and I knew I wanted to use her in conjunction with Jen's March Sketch For You To Try. I made this as a card, but I'm going to put it in a clear envelope and take it flying with me. There's a timed component to some of the instrument landings I've been learning and I need a little something to remind me to start the timer, so I'm going to clip this to the yoke. I think it'll draw my attention with the fun colours!

I stamped the clock a second time so I could pop it for dimension and I also gave the face a few coats of clear glaze pen to make it look like glass.

The gorgeous flower is thanks to my new Upsy Daisy die-namics...LOVE!!! I cut the flowers out of baja breeze and curled the petals a little. The center is a brown sparkler by Webster's Pages but I tucked an orange circle under it to make it brighter.

I think she's ready for her first flight with me tomorrow!! Can I call her my co-pilot? ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!

Wow! So many fabulous details on that card, but daisy is amazing! Need that die!

Who else could combine stamping and flying?! Don't let your pretty card distract you from the instrument panel :) I like your idea of putting an orange circle behind the brown flower centre.
