Friend's Birthday Card

Took advantage of a snow day, especially since we almost never see snow.  I wanted to enter a couple of challenges this week.  I decided to make a birthday card for a girlfriend at work who's birthday is next month.
Just Us Girls challenge is a color challenge this week.  The challenge requires the use of at least 3 of 4 colors: Benjamin Moore Navy, Benjamin Moore Silver Crest, Benjamin Moore Grant Beige, and Benjamin Moore Heartbeat.
BBTB2 challenge is: Tic Toc Clock.  The challenge requires the use of a Cricut clock image from any Cricut cartridge of your choice.
Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge is: a sketch, obviously. LOL!
Showcase Your Style challenge is: Birthday.  Not sure I'll make this one, since I can't figure out the linky.  I've already tried to enter a card and it shows up as "Linky Tools 2.0" *blah*
So the color challenge colors sparked my brain.  I knew I had some printed papers somewhere that would be perfect, but I couldn't find them where I thought they were.  Then it hit me, I had purchased DCWV Le Tres Chic Stack and Cardstock Stack.  Stampin' Up! Night of Navy for the Card Base.  
Oh, and I've never made a Double Z fold card{ at least that's what I think it is.}  I used a sentiment from a set of MCT stamps, a die from Jaded Blossom, some twine and brads from Michael's and a brad from Stampin' Up!  I almost forgot, I used the clock from the Cricut "Heritage" cartridge.
I hope you like what I came up with.  See you next time!

First off, your card is absolutely stunning! Your friend is going to cherish this card. One of my favourite cardstock brands is DCWV (I have to travel 3 1/2 hours to buy it though). I love the technique used on your clock and your embellishments are the perfect touch. Thank you for joining our Clock Challenge at BBTB2!

Oh, I really love this grandfather clock, so pretty. The card fold is so much fun and the papers are so perfect for your card. Thanks for joinimg us at BBTB2.

Oh I am loving this birthday card!! The grandfather clock is beautiful and I love the fold of your card-which I think is called a double z. You papers are just beautiful too. You should contact someone on "showcase your style" and have them help you with the linky. Sometimes those linky's can be tricky. Thanks for joining us at BBTB2 ;-)
