Like Clockwork...

Birthdays just keep on coming, like clockwork, don't they? ; )  I like clock/watch images for birthday cards, is that weird?  Oh well, I like my card today anyway.  I bought Clockworks as soon as it came out, and then kinda couldn't figure out much what to do with it, but today I had a bright idea and this is my favorite thing I've made with this set yet.

Hey, I made a CAS card!  The colors (from an SCS color challenge from a couple months back) make me think of Sherlock Holmes and men smoking in Victorian drawing rooms.  Also, pocket watches need to become fashionable again, because they're cool.  I also stamped some gears inside the card.

The shadow makes it look like I put the Very Vanilla layer in there all crooked, but I didn't.

Today's card is based (a little bit loosely) on this awesome sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:

I figure it's still close enough to count for the challenge, right?

Thanks for taking the time (teehee) to stop by today!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Clockworks, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Crushed Curry, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals (but even that kinda looks masculine on here, right?)
Paper:  Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Absolutely none!  Just adhesive.
