"Time" for a Happy Birthday

An 8x8 scalloped edged card with a "time" theme.  The background has been inked and stamped using distress inks; Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and then inked again through a stencil in places before being overstamped with images from the Indigo Blu "time 1" plate and a script stamp from one of my new Marianne Design stamps "La Musique!.

The text down the left hand side is a page from a dictionary with all "time" words, this has been inked with Tea Dye distress inks as has the panel of stamped Kaisercraft clocks.
My cogs have been die cut from gold mirri card, half embossed through the "bug" and then aged with black Stazon ink. My chipboard letters have been sanded and edged with charcoal black and white pencils.

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

I have lots of passion when it comes to crafting but I think my favourite has to be "distressing" as there are so many ways how to do this.  On this card I have distressed my dictionary text just purely by crumpling paper and colouring with distress inks.  My cogs have have been distressed with black Stazon, my chipboard letters have been sanded with a nail file and I have added charcoal pencil around elements.

Thanks for stopping by especially as we seem to be experiencing a little sunshine - appreciate it!

Hi Suzanne!
Thanks for letting me know that I forgot to put DT after my name on the Marianne's Design Diva's challengesblog. I am not able to remove my link or to put DT behind it. Is it possible for you as DT-member to remove my link, so I can do it again? I also left a note on the challengeblog itself. Thanks so much, you create wonderful things!

Good morning Suzanne,

I didn't know that Marianne the stamps, I must be well behind with the times, the least it something else knew to look out for.

Your card is beautifully distressed and balanced, colour palette works perfectly.

Thank you so much sharing your 'Crafty Passion' (and what better passion than distressing) with us at Stampalot challenge this month.
