Clock watching

As the weather has been atrocious here today I have not done any work down on the allotment, however I have made a couple of crafting bits, and am hoping to finish stitching my mouse soft toy later.

So I have made a card using a textured card blank. A leaf square was die-cut from silver mirror-card and attached to the top right.
I used some Anita's sticky ribbon in purple flowers and papermania self-adhesive flower strips from the lincoln linen range and stuck them to plain cream card, which was attached to the base card.
Room with a View by Helz Cuppleditch (The London Line) was stamped onto artists paper and coloured with promarkers: MorningMist, Daffodil bloom, Summer sun, Tequila sunrise, Tropical orchid, Pink lobster, Tawny owl, Grey squirrel, Icicle, Eggnog,Winter berry, Blush, Peach, Amethyst and a couple of the cool greys.
The image was then matted onto silver mirror card and attached to the left of the card (following the sketch). Finally a tag was die-cut from pink card and a button added to the end, buttons were added to the centre of the flowers (all from the papermania capsule collection range). Two purple pearls were then added to the bottom of the two leaves that can be seen.

Here it is:
This will be entered into the following challenges:

I also made a voucher holder for Christmas using a green card blank and Anita's sticky ribbon, with a button and some elasticated thread for fastening.
