What Time Is It?

My friend, Alex asked me to make a special card for her boyfriend's birthday. She is getting him a watch, which is something she swore she'd never get him. (She is breaking her adopted wives tale of "don't give a watch or a clock as a present because the time of your
relationship with that person will not be long".) I think they'll be just fine, now he'll think of her more often as he looks at nice new watch. :)

So, we talked about a clock being on the card and here's what I came up with. It was important to her to have the hands at 10 and 2, not because he's a bad driver, but because she pointed out it makes a smile. Cute, huh! To be honest, I'm a little nervous and hope she likes it. I'm nervous, because she is an interior designer with great taste and high standards (or as my co-workers like to tease her and call her a 'decorator') and I hope my paper creation can meet her expectations.

Just in case the color comes across weird on the computer, I used Basic Gray, Lucky Limeade, and Basic Black.
