The Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge #88 - Just Add Ink Challenge #74 - Fancy Folds - Birthday Time

Hello Everyone,
Today's post is for this weeks Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge and Just Add Inks' Fancy Fold Challenge. The Challenge picture reminded me of a clock so I made an Easel card and decorated the clock face.  I gold embossed the flower branches on the base card and stamped them in black on the face of the clock. To finish it off I added some shiny gold pearls in different sizes. The colours are not ones I would normally use together and I don't think I have used Tangerine Tango to often, but I think it came together okay, what do you think? 

Stamps:  S/U's Sense of Time, Easter Blossoms, Vintage Labels
Card: Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla, Cool Caribbean
Ink:  Stazon Black, Crumb Cake, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Versamark
Embellishments:  Gold Brad, Shiny Gold Pearls, Grossgrain Ribbon,
Tools:  Big Shot, Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Piercing Tool, Sponge, 1/2" Circle Punch, Embossing Buddy, Gold EB Powder, Heat Tool, Scalloped Circle Punch, Martha Stewart Vintage Floral Border Punch, Mini Glue Dots, 2 Way Glue Pen, Jone's Gloopy Glue
Thanks' for poppin in today.
