"Time Flies" . . . Sugar Nellie DT Monday

Hey there all you "sugar" lovers!! I'm here with my bi-monthly Sugar Nellie DT card . . . and I have to say, I am continually shocked at how quickly time seems to be passing by! So, for today's card I used that very theme . . . Time Flies!

This whimsical image is from the "Leanne Ellis" collection of Sugar Nellie stamps! Coincidentally, this image is called "Time Flies" . . . and is available HERE at Funky Kits. Oh, ooooh . . . I just checked . . . it's available now at a discounted price! How cool is that?!

I decided to create a card with plenty of fun and funky elements and lots of layers!! I think I achieved that goal! This little "masterpiece" is definitely NOT "clean and simple", now, is it?! hehehe!

I used some clear acrylic stamps from my stash for the sentiments. I can tell you, while I love that I can position them correctly, I just don't care for the way the stamped image comes out. So, once I used them, they landed in the bin! aacck! I also used some fun "grunge" stamps from Lili of the Valley! Love these! Oh . . . and that flower is actually blue . . . rather than lavender as it appears in these photos!
