Make 5 o'clock Good

Hello internet friends, I am excited to share a card I made today for a couple challenges; the CAS(E) this Shetch #165, and the colour combo from IN{K}SPIRE me #242. I used Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizazz, Backberry Bliss, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White to make this card. The centre piece is layered on top of retired 2-tone Pink Pirouette ribbon, and a shaped piece of Pear Pizazz. The Greeting is from a retired Paper Pumpin Kit and stamped in Blackberry Bliss.  The whole thing is layered on a piece of White CS that I sponged with Pear Pizazz.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the clock pieces, then stamped the word stamp from French Foliage onto the clock face in Blackberry Bliss, and added a rhinestone for some glam. I made the time slightly after 5 o'clock because I was originally thinking of doing a 5 o'clock somewhere greeting... I guess I still could on the inside.  Here is a close-up of the clock face. (Sorry its rotated, blogger says that it is the "right way up" lol)

Here is the clock before I changed out the centre for plain white version with the words. The first one here was sponged with Pear Pizazz in the centre and Blackberry Bliss around the outside. I think it looks much better with the white above; this one gives off a dirty vibe. What are your thoughts?

Here is the sketch and colour combo for this card:

Thanks for stopping by,
Stay creative my Darlings,
