Lord Have Mercy, It's a Play Date

I made this card using Lord Have Mercy Tuesday Sketch Challenge #83. I bought the clock paper and clock embellishment at different times but I am very drawn to old looking things. I just love this Boardwalk paper. It reminds me of pictures that I have of my Grandmother who owned and ran a flower shop in the biggest hotel on the boardwalk in Atlantic City in the 1920's.  The bathing beauties  come on a sheet with different poses. I just love this paper.
The colors were inspired by the Play Date Cafe Challenge #39. You can't go wrong with these colors. As soon as I saw them I knew just what paper I was going to use.

Here is the recipe for this card:
*Stamp: CTMH Express Postage
*Paper: SU, Going Gray, Black, Graphic45          On the Boardwalk, and Times Nouveau Hip to the Jive
*Ink: Memento black
*Acc: CTMH Edge Distresser, Spare Parts Clock Icons  

I really like this card. What do you think? 

I got a little fancy with the title. It was just to easy this time.


Thanks for stopping,

Those bathing beauties are a neat image. How cool that your grandmother owned a flower shop in a hotel in AC.
