sentiment focus challenge

Well it's Saturday so that can only mean one thing, challenge time!

This mornings challenge was very tricky indeed I've found with the Less is More challenges that thinking of the idea takes longer than making the cards, or it does in my case, actually that seems to happen a lot!

Today's challenge is a one layered card, that's main focus is a sentiment. I instantly thought of the sentiment from the Sense of time stamp set, but I had no idea how I would make the card, simple without being plain.
Here's what I came up with

I don't know if you can see but I have used my spritzing tool to add a little texture to this card, however I didn't want it to distract from the main image so I spritzed from quite far away. I also used the gorgeous clock face and cute little cogs, as well as some chocolate chip satin ribbon. Hopefully I have not added too much, it is all stamped/spritzed on a single layer.

I was really nice to sit down and relax with a card today, as yesterday was spent frantically looking for my 7 month old black and white kitty Salem, who had decided that he'd wonder off. He hasn't ever been out for longer than a couple of hours without popping back to make sure someone is still here, however yesterday he decided to go missing at about 8.30am, and didn't turn up again until 4.30 this morning!

The naughty little munchkin is now fast asleep on the bed

Looking like butter wouldn't melt!

Anyway, here's what I've used on today's challenge card
Stamps, Sense of time,
Paper, Whisper white,
Ink, Chocolate chip,
Accessories, Early espresso marker, spritzing tool, chocolate chip satin ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig, (post it note for masking)

Happy stampin'

Well, this is a super card, I like the brown ribbon and the spritzing was a good idea although not a lot shows up too clearly on my monitor!
I'm so glad the errant pussy cat returned! It must have been quite a worry.
