I found this sentiment and thought it would work well for a birthday card. I'm still in the CAS neutrals only challenge mode and having fun making some masculine cards. I stamped my grunge spatters and then started with the larger circle clock face "layered" with the pocket watch that is embossed in a mix of ep. I had intended to have the numbers and inner circle be black, but forgot that my ink would take the ep so ended up with it all embossed. I embossed the sentiment in Early Espresso ep. All my edges are sponged and distressed and sponged again. I added a twine piece that I sponged a bit of extra color on and tied it with a doubled up piece of linen thread. I'm going to set this one aside for my dad who turns 80 in a couple of months.
