Upcycled Cereal Packet Clock 'Les Papillons'

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with one of my Upcycling projects, I used Cereal packets to make the base for my clock. I cut them with Grand Nestibilities Circles die and attached a few layers together to strengthen the clock. I then added pretty papers by My Minds Eye, then heat embossed Butterflies with Stampendous embossing powder. Next I put together my clock movement and added my numerals. I then attached a paper cup on the reverse which I had strengthened with modge podge and layers of paper to make the surface to hang the clock from.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
