Party Time Tuesdays DT post

Hello to all my friends and followers, I hope your week is going well and that you all enjoyed good New Year celebrations, we all went to my sisters for a takeaway and had a lovely time. Back at work now so back to counting the weeks till the next holiday lol!
I'm here today to share my very first DT post for Party Time Tuesdays and I am so excited to be part of this wonderful team.
A new challenge has begun today. The challenges are set monthly on the first Tuesday of the month and the theme is always Anything Goes.
A huge thank you to  Spectrum Noir who are sponsoring this challenge.

I decided to make a New Year card and thought this gorgeous image that I won in a recent challenge fitted the bill perfectly. It's from Lacey Sunshine and is called 1920's Winter Lizabeth.
I wanted to use some clock paper and had a little root around my stash-I found this from the Wellington paper pack so decided on a blue and brown colour scheme to tie in with it.
I made an easel card and layered it with papers from the Lili of the Valley Winter Wishes pack and some Kraft Kard. I die cut a swirl and a little feathery shape and punched a strip with my Martha Stewart doily punch. I cut out one of the clocks and added glossy accents to the clock face -the sentiment is stamped with an old wooden alphabet stamp set that I've never used before but I was quite pleased with how it turned out.  I added some little gems and some glitter to finish off.
So why not pop on over to the challenge blog here and take a look now at the other DT's gorgeous inspiration cards and enter the challenge too!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
