TIME to Create Memories

I just got some new toys...and of course I had to play with them. I decided to finally buy some of Tim Holtz' Distress Inks and Paints. His work is so awesome, I  easily get discouraged when my projects don't come out as cool looking as his do. But then I have to remind myself he has had lots of practice and an endless supply of craft tools and supplies.

So I decided to go with the theme of Time so that I can participate in the current challenge going on over at A Vintage Journey.

Here is the finished product:



I started out with a TAG


I think my colors came out great. I was concerned it would be a little bit too dark, but I was happy with the final results.

From there, I just started putting my card together.


I had an embossing folder that worked perfect for this theme. I picked up the designer paper just yesterday at Tuesday Morning.


I used several embellishments to add to my TIME theme. I picked up some jewelry jump rings and clasps so that I could attach my charms to the ribbon rather than just glue them to my card.


And of course I had to finish off the inside of my card to match the theme. I plan on making a matching envelope as well.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
