Less is More week 133-theme Round and Round

Evening all, a bit late I know but there always seems to be a few night owls around  (:| This week's challenge over at Less is More is as follows:
For our theme this week our challenge is 
For this you may use any image which implies this things with wheels or which move in this manner etc or in fact cards with some moving parts.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do but remembered a freebie spiral stamp from Craft Stamper magazine and while I was looking for it I came across another one from CS and my card was born :)
Come and see:

I stamped with SU Baja Breeze,River Rock and Early Expresso. I added a brad to the centre of the dial and  some piercing around the edge.  The sentiment is from my Xyron digital printer. So apart from the spiral background I wanted to focus on the centre of the phone which went round as you dialled, some of you may remember that  ;)

Thanks for taking the time to visit, please let me know so that I can visit you.

Such a clever idea, and I can remember when you had to 'dial' a number, none of this screen touching when we first used a phone.

Seriously, some cards are just waiting around in our stashes, waiting to be born and this was obviously one of yours! It's brilliant and just chock full of round and round to delight the eyes! Love it, Val!!

This looks wonderful Val and your use of shading is terrific.
Sadly I'm old enough to remember the round and round dials!
Thanks so much

Great card Val - love the phone........made me remember the phone we were "allowed" to use in the middle of the hall two doors down! Great colourway and more than enough rounds.

Stunning card, love the use of the stamps (mine are also hiding somewhere unused) and the pricking finished it off nicely.

Sasha said...

Brilliant idea for the challenge, Val. Love your fab little phone!
I certainly remember these phones. My first office job was as a telephonist, using these phones and and the old type switchboard! Those were the days! xx

Aquarius said...

Lovely card Val...these freebies do come in handy at times dont you little phone and colours


Unknown said...

I really love your card! The softness of the colors is nice. The little bits of piercing are fun too, and I like that they stop where your corner of stamping is. Everything flows well and looks so complete and polished :)

Best crafty wishes!

I have a phone like that Val so I know what you mean about the dial going round - great until you're in a hurry lol! Love the card - that spiral background fits the phone image so well and I love the sentiment. Vicky x

I love this card Val, but I don't want to admit that I know what you mean about the centre of the phone going round when you dial a number!! I'm sure my Mum told me about it!! LOL
