Only when the clock stops


I haven't felt much like crafting recently, but this afternoon I realised that if I didn't pull my finger out, I was going to miss a challenge that I wanted to enter, and that's been happening too often lately. So, I settled myself down with a few challenges and realised that I quite felt like making a vintage piece, so this is what I came up with. Papers are from Arsenic and Old Lace by Crafty Chaos Designs, and the quote is by William Faulkner.
Here are the challenges:
Just for Fun - time + wings
Order of the Opus Gluei - sketch
ABC Challenge - O is for Old-fashioned
Stampavie and More - monochrome
Challenge Up Your Life - monochrome
