I had several ideas for this challenge on DS4J to create something showing "Oh My . . . How Time Flies." I had at first thought to use a clock with wings. I have several clock materials: paper, embossing folder, stamps. Then I decided that most people would have that same idea. I checked out the DS4J store and found this beautiful verse for a 100 year old person. Looked through many sketches and found one I like. However, the end product looks nothing like the sketch I started out with. That happens often. Also, I wanted to use some materials that I have had for a long time, paid a lot for and put on the shelf unused. I pulled out my stash of Shimmer Sheetz by Els. The piece I used for my background was exactly the same size as the card bases I had so I went from there. Since there was a butterfly in the image, I pulled out the Spellbinders Butterflies Circles. I printed the image on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White paper and cut it out with the die. I colored it with my Copics. I used the tiny butterflies from the die for accents on my background. I forgot to attach the ribbon before I adhered the Shimmer Sheetz to the base so I ran the ribbon all around the top of the card. I made the bow by just folding ribbon back and forth a couple times and tieing it in the middle with a piece of silver string from my stash. I am pleased with it. Now I just have to find someone who is going to be 100 years old soon to give it to.
