I made this card for a special friend. I first met him when he was 6 months old and I was his daycare provider. He is turning 16 and is a handsome young man now. I used the Cbug embossing folder for background and distressed it with brown ink (sorry I don't have SU pad yet) as it reminded me of an old tin ceiling. I used the 'In Time' stamp from Paperbag Studios. I love all her stuff. I also used SU plaid to overstamp birthday wishes (from Michaels dollar bin). Used a filmstrip punch for the sides behind picture and distressed edges with scissors. Finally added the photo corner and the watch. I can't believe time has gone that quickly and he is almost 16!
Thanks for looking,

What a perfect card! There are so many creative detials here-the distressed *tin* ceiling look, the way you used the plaid stamp at an angle, and all the little touches that make it so unique. Straight to my favs for inspiration! TFS, and Happy Holidays!
