Masculine Birthday Wishes

This is the card I made for my dad's 82nd birthday last week:

 When I saw this sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches (You can find it here ) .
...and this card by Clean Team Designer, Jennifer Brum...

...I knew it would make the perfect birthday card for my dad.
 The numbers were made from orange cardstock die cut with my Cuttlebug and then I used Glossy Accent to make them shiny and add a bit of depth. The background is white cardstock embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and layered on a brown cardstock mat.
The watch image is from  Studio G and is stamped on white cardstock with Vingtage Photo Distress ink then cut out. The smaller circle is cut from white cardstock and I used a chevron mask with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. I then inked the edges with both the Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo and cut a larger brown circle to mat it. 

 Birthday Wishes is stamped on white cardstock that I then cut into a ribbon and inked the edges with both distress inks and adhered it to the circle with foam dots.
The striped pattern paper is from DCWV. I love this paper and I had to get a close up to show you how glossy it is. It also has a bit of glitter but not too much.

I hope to get back in the swing of creating cards next week. I have missed getting ink on my hands :)
