A Simple Clock and Butterflies Creation

Hi Peeps.  A simple creation from me today, which is unusual for me to take the easy route.  The sun is shining here today and it is very hot where I sit in my craft room.  I have tried to open the window but we have been plagued with Ladybirds this year.  The other day I was only gone a few minutes and when I came back the whole of my desk was covered in Ladybirds.

My 7 x 7 Card

Numbers all around the Clock Face in both Roman Numerals and Conventional Numbers in the inner circle.  Also numbers on the Post Mark Stamps in the background. I state this for a Challenge I am entering.

Products Used

7 x 7 Card Blank - Anna Marie Designs
Dp:- Promises - Lili of the Valle and Nit Wit Collections
Image from :- CAJOLINE-SCRAP
Doilies - Stephanie Weightman at Hobby Craft
Glittered Butterflies - Elizabeth Brownd - K & Company

Thank you for looking and I hope the weather is good were you are today.
