It's Not A Quirky Sketch, it's Two!

Evening everyone! Hope you've had a fabulous weekend.
It's that Quirky Time again. The challenge should've started over on Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog, that's if I've pressed the right button, because it's my turn to set the challenge this time. And, yes, you guessed, it's....
a sketch!
(No surprise there then!) I always do a sketch, but this time, I've given you a choice. We have Two Sketches! (Wooo weee!) You can use either one or both of them if you wish, we don't mind, the more the merrier!
This time round we're kindly being sponsored by...

The Cutting Cafe

I've made three cards in all, using some of their digi downloads. Out of the three, this one is my favourite. The other cards are on the challenge blog and I'll post them here later.
I've used a black blank card, which is just under 6"x6" and covered it first with Dovecraft silver miri board and Dovecraft backing paper, which I found out, (after using them to do a bit of paper piecing) you can print your digi's straight onto them, throw on some clear embossing power and heat set it and it looks as though you've stamped it! The paper feels quite 'waxy' so maybe that's a clue.
I've used 'It's about the Time, Clocks' set from The Cutting Cafe and used my Nesties and Woodward punches to die cut and punch out the clocks.
I've used the top sketch, for this card just in case you hadn't noticed! So, there you go. We won't mind if you want to add a few more bits and bobs. I've added flowers and leaves to one of my other cards, which I'll show you later or of course, you can pop over to Quirky Craft's and join in now!
