A Card using Cricut French Manor

It is challenge time at
Cooking With Cricut

Challenge #20 Theme - Spring Forward....
Project must have a clock or time piece on it.

I created this card using Cricut French Manor

I used the card2 feature and cut twice.  First, I placed my store bought card using my Gypsy and lining up the card on the mat. I also used the hide contour feature to hide the actual card since I just needed the clock to be cut on my card.
I cut again on glitter red paper using hide contour and leaving only the clock, since there was no layer feature. I just hand cut around to give it the thin frame look.
I used a Kelly Panacci/Sandylion stamp and the Cricut/Cuttlebug Fanciful Labels for the sentiment.  I had cut a sentiment using Paper Lace cartridge welding the letter to read Spring Forward, but settled on a stamped sentiment instead.
I inked everything with distress ink "old paper" and added two drops of puffy red glitter to the flower button I used for the center of the bow.
