Cuckoo for You!

I haven't had a chance to participate in The Craft's Meow's sketch challenge in a while and I was determined to do it this month.

AND, I was the very lucky winner of Nina Brackett's new Vintage Clocks set in this last release.  I just love these images, and was keeping my fingers crossed that it would get to me before month's end.  As luck would have it, it was waiting for me when I got home today!

My favorite image from the set is this cuckoo clock.  I wanted it to look like it extended past the tag, so I stamped the top of the clock on the tag and then stamped the bottom on a scrap piece of paper and fussy cut it out to attach it to the tag. 

I've paired it with my Pemberley papers.  They are so pretty, and have that vintage look to them, so I thought they would be perfect together.  That blue piece is from the zip strip on one of the papers.  I added some crocheted lace from Hydrangea Hippo and some sheer gold ribbon I received in a grab bag a while back.

This one was just so much fun to put together!  Hope you are having a wonderful evening!
