This is for FS387 and Nancy aka nancyt is our featured artist today. Congratulations Nancy. I had lots of fun browsing through your gallery with my coffee this morning. I was inspired by your Timeless card found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=65830
I really liked the vintage image, watch faces and designer paper on Nancy's project. I went with the time theme and used a vintage pocket watch image as well as a medallion and key. I used a vintage designer paper for my background used a fairly simple layout. This is a little out of my wheelhouse but I had fun stretching myself. Thanks for the inspiration Nancy.

Oh my!!! What an amazing masculine card!!! I was taken with every element, but thought that your idea of braiding gold twine for your pocket watch chain was ingenious!!! You are clearly a great photographer (an area I am sadly not, but work on it each time I take photos of my cards...), for the gold embossed details are so clear and in great focus, well-done!
I love the crimped detail behind the watch--something I wouldn't think to pull out, and I love it when I see something like this--something we tend to have but forget to use because of newer techniques and gadgets, again--great!!! Any man would be thrilled to get this card!
What a great tribute card to nancyt, wow! And to think this isn't an area you normally go for cards--clearly you may want to make more because you have made a stunning masculine card. I think most of us feel these are when we are not at our best--because we can't pretty them up. But you don't need a thing here! WONDERFUL!!!

Kittie, I have seen every card you've ever posted, and I have to tell you that I have yet to see one that isn't absolutely stunning. This is no exception. Whether you're taking a stab at something new, or creating those breathtaking flowers or your precious vignettes, you have the ability to bring who YOU are to every challenge. That's what I want to achieve in my art. I will always be a fan of your work and love your willingness to help! This is beautiful!! HUGE HUGS!!
