challenge 42 special birthday

hi ladies well it's that time again new challenge on crafty cardmakers
this week it's melly that has thought it up and she has chosen
special birthday

We're sponsored once again by the fabulous Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 prize for her superb online store! Thank You once again Joanna!

well here is my contribution. As this one is for a bloke i thought tim holtz designs might be a good idea i hate doing mens cards normally but really enjoyed making this one as i 'm quite new to tims stuff and am really enjoying playing around with it
i used some of tims backing papers then die cut the clock and cogs on my new vagabond they are sizzix dies the numbers and letters are die cut too this are made by cuttlebug they are the cut and emboss ones i inked them with some distress ink
the tag again die cut cuttlebug cut and emboss
i distressed everything in site with some sandpaper then added a bit of binding ribbon and little buckle from my stash
hope you like it
