Apricot Memories

This peachy/apricot picture of carnations was printed on acetate which gives them a wonderful ethereal  look.  I've had it for awhile and finally used it for this card.  The card background was sprayed with Tattered Angels; love how you can blend colors seamlessly.  Upon that, I stamped and white-embossed a few collage elements.  I have an old French book that I use for text.  A white-washed sheet of the book was torn and sewn onto the front of the card.  The circles were die cut from previously spritzed  paper.  I used a chipboard circle under the clock to layer atop the die cuts.
