Altered Clock

Hello ..hope everything is enjoying the sunshine...I really hope this is not our summer!

The clock is from Dunelm which I think I paid £2 from the bargain bucket by the till...
The papers from the DCVW Mariposa pad have been "patchworked" or "pieced" and elements of the papers cut out and layered for interest.  I have purposely not gone overboard with the embellishments as I wanted my clock to still work i.e. the hands move unobstructed.
My stamped flowers (free stamp from Craft Stamper) have been layered and seed beads added to the centres. My butterflies and numbers are grungeboard and these have been inked with distress inks before distressed stickles were added.
The flourish/swirl around the clock is a PaperArtsy stamp and the numbers are from an Elusive Image (now Chocolate Baroque) plate of stamps - as is the decorative background stamp which hopefully you can see!

 I would like to enter my clock into the following challenges:-

The Stamp Man - "Bingo"
I used the left vertical line;- green, flowers and swirls.

Crafty Cardmakers - "Time"

Creative Craft Challenges - "anything but a card"

Paper Creations Ink - "things with wings"
