Creative Embellishments - January Challenge - Turn Back Time Card

I just found some creative energy to enter a challenge at the last minute that has had me stumped for weeks.  Here is my entry to the Creative Embellishment Challenge for January called Turn Back Time.  I was inspired by the spirals, time, & blue/gold. I've also submitted this card to More Than Words January Mini Challenge.  The Mini Challenge runs on the last week of each month and is for cards, tags and ATCs only.  This challenge requires you to use a specific word on your project.  This month the word is "one."
I began creating the background with a spiral text stamp that has a quote involving time which seemed very appropriate for this challenge. Then I heat set with clear embossing powder and applied Gelatos over it which created a resist affect. I stamped the clocks onto transparency and attached them with brads. Finally, I added a small embellishment cluster.
A Closer Look:

Supplies: Birds Clocks Rubber Stamp Set (Sin City Stamps), Versamark Watermark Ink Pad (Tsukineko), clear embossing powder (Stampendous), Heat Gun (Ranger), Archival Jet Black Ink Pad (Ranger), Stazon Black Ink Pad (Tsukineko), ink blending tool, metal flower, decorative hat pin, key, ticket, gold brads

To be eligible for the $50 gift voucher prize, you have until the last day of January (11:55 pm eastern time) to enter.  Gather inspiration from the picture below and be sure to somehow include numbers.  Create a new project - layout, mini album, tag, card, canvas and then add your entry to the InLinkz box on their blog.  It is required that you mention in your blog post that you are playing along at Creative Embellishments together with a link back to their blog. For the complete set of Challenge rules please visit the Creative Embellishments Blog.

Thanks for stopping by.
