My first challenge!

My wonderful downline and friend, Aimee Cretsinger, has been playing around with some challenges and has encouraged me to join in on the fun.  This is my first one and boy am I nervous abut sharing my work with those that I consider professionals! :)  This is Challenge #149 over at colourQ.  I love this site because they give you all Stampin' Up! colors to work with!  Here are the colors we are working with this week:

My good friend Clay's 29th birthday is on Sunday and I thought these were pretty good colors for a masculine card.  He is always teasing us, saying how we are so old and close to 40 (I'm 33!), so I thought it would be fitting to put a clock on his card to let him know that his time's a tickin' too!

Stamp Sets: Clockworks, Itty Bitty Banners
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
Ink: Certainly Celery, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit
Tools: Bitty Banners Framelits, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch, Square Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch
Accessories: Mini brads, Dimensionals
