DCWV Northridge Publishing Contest Entry & Giveaway WINNER!

I have just recently found DCWV and have fallen in love with their papers.  When I saw this contest, I was at a loss for what to create.  As you can see, I've been doing a lot of cards lately so that came to mind and I wanted to follow the "unique" description in the announcement.

I looked through my "Tattered Time" stack and came across a few ideas but in the end I made this card with one . . . yes, just one . . . 12" X 12" page.  Here is how it started.
I love the monochromatic look of it and the gears and metal clock pieces have a great shine to them.  The background was antique-y enough to work in the card I planned.

Here is everything I used to make the card and your first glimpse:

And a birds-eye view to show you the dimension I added with the "ladder card" cut and some pop-dots (actually, they were squares).
The sentiment was from the D1257 Make It Count CTMH stamp set as well as the "magic moments" and the numbers on the vertical sections.  I love how the set worked with the paper.  The bow was an afterthought but I like how it softens the look a little.  The card folds flat to fit into an envelope as well. (It doesn't make sense for me to make a card I can't give out.)

Here's a final straight on, close up view.  I hope you like it.
I haven't done a lot of challenges yet but each time I try, I push myself a little more.  (Note that I used another piece of Tattered Time paper as the background for my pics.  I love the dimension and "tattered" look especially!)

Please check back on Monday to see the updated Specials and Giveaways tab.
