What Time is It? Party time of course!

I need a birthday card for this coming weekend and thought I'd combine my need with  The Friday Mashup challenge making a card using an image of a  clock, time piece, or black card stock or all of the above.
 Here is my card:

The stamped clock was heat embossed. I then individually (yes, one at a time) added the Roman Numerals (I was worried after all the prep work that I'd put the wrong #'s in the wrong place, so I used an existing clock  for the 9, 10, and 11 numbers).  I know, I know, I too learned the #'s in school, but that was a long time ago and I seldom  have occasion to use Roman Numerals.  The numerals were also heat embossed to give added shine. 
I purposely placed the clock face off center to add some interest plus my supply of very vanilla card stock is zilch at this time, so I had to use scraps and yes it is Very Vanilla not white as it appears in the photo (what's that all about)?

The die cut hands of the clock were cut on white card stock and then I literally dragged a black ink pad back and forth to color them.  I added a glitzy brad to the center to hold the hands and to match the color sentiment at the bottom of the card.  It must be 5 o'clock somewhere and you know that means "party time"!

Here I was trying to show the heat embossing, I guess you can see some of it.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, it makes my day!


 Supplies used:
Focal stamps Papertrey Ink
Sentiment "    Cas-ual Stamps
Card Stock - SU Very Vanilla (I know it looks white)
and black 
Inks: Versamark, SU Primrose Petals & Basic Black

This is a really lovely card, Nancy. I'm going to have to find that clock stamp and CASE this :) Thank you for the inspiration.

Wow, that is really lovely! Love the 3-D effect of your die-cut hands. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

I had to laugh about your Roman Numerals tale. ...too funny, but this card is gorgeous.
... I love your 5 o'clock somewhere Party card!
PS: I JUST made a card using all the stamps, dies, etc... from this set.
It IS very "time" consuming too! All those little pieces/parts.

PS:: I also got a kick out of your story of inking the clock hands. ..You know I'm going to ask why didn't you die cut the hands from black cardstock?

oOOppps forgot to say I LOVE the touch of red on the center glimmer brad! Really pops against the heat embossing.

This is GORGEOUS, Mom! The big clock image is stunning and even more so because you heat embossed it. Love the pop of red in the center and your tale about the roman numerals cracks me up! I can totally relate! Lovely card!

Wow Nancy, this is such a gorgeous card! Love that clock and the work that it took you with the roman numerals really paid off. After all you put the correct numbers in the correct place, lol. Thanks for playing along with us at the Friday Mashup this week!
