The last Friday in January 2010 already?

Okay, Unity fans, seriously, where is the time going?  tick, tock, tick, tock...

In honor of time passing me by so quickly, I decided to create a card using the Unity Worn Vintage Clock and sentiments from the This is the Time miniature stamp sets.  I added the butterflies to complete my message of... time flying by ...heehee.

I placed the butterflies from my Sizzix die cuts on the background c/s and I misted Gold Glimmer Mist to create a mask of the butterflies. (of course, the 'glimmer and shine' doesn't show on the photo)...oh well.  Then I placed the negative part of the butterfly die cuts back on the c/s and shaded the insides with Ranger Distress Inks.  Finally, I stamped off the grandfather clock onto a scrap piece of paper before stamping on the actual c/s (the ink was way too dark directly on the c/s).  Final touches: added a layer of vellum and stamped the time sentinment on vellum also; added some ribbon and pop dots for the face of the clock with a little twine, and this is what I ended up with:
