watch faces

Well that's the end of the easter weekend! we had a great time with friends-had too much food and gin and tonics!
I still had a bit of time to craft though! this is getting less though as my little man has decided he doesn't want a daytime nap every day!
I made this card following inspiration from Mellymoo crafting (who's paperstash prize I won!). CAS #18 colours and sketches challenge gave me the idea of these watch faces. I also wanted to make a man card as I need the practice!

I have used a freebie magazine stamp for the watch face and the sentiment. I used pumice stone Distress ink to make it look vintage and have decoupaged two faces for dimension, Around the edges of both the card and the topper I scored to add interest.
Hope you like it!
I am going to enter it in  the following challenges:
