Do you ever come across some paper and think I have to have this and then it sits in your craft room forever?  Well that is what happened with this paper.  I am in love with anything vintage and when I came across this paper that had clocks, gears, an aged look to it.... I had to have it!  Needless to say I didn't do anything with it until now!  I gathered some black ribbon, used a spellbinder oval die, one of my favorite quotes, a cog punch, vintage button and the Italian Flourish Doily Diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs. Can you believe no bling was needed! 
I will be entering this into the Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge!
