Distressed Birthday

     Okay, this is my first complete Tim Holtz card. The only thing that is not is the sentiment. I used Grunge paper to cut out the diecuts with his clock and sprocket and gears dies from Sizzix.  I used his Vintage Photo distressing powder along with his vintage photo distress ink.  The stamp set is called "Playful Journey". I used this to create the background. I used Rangers Crackle Accents for the face of the sentiment.   My Brother-in-laws birthday is next week so i had to make a "Man" card.  I think that he'll like it as much as a man likes a card i guess. LOL. I had a great time making it anyway.
