Happy Birthday, Jim!

I made this card for my hubby, Jim, for his birthday next week. I always have a hard time with masculine cards, but I kinda like how this one turned out. I stamped the old pocket watch first, and then broke up the Happy Birthday sentiment, to emboss it. I thought the pocket watch ink was dry. But, apparently it wasn't since when I added the embossing powder, it stuck to it, as well. It makes it a bit difficult to read the sentiment, but you get the point and I think I like it like this even better than my original plan. I love this photostamp from The Mountains plate by The Stampsmith. You can find it under Landscapes on the online shop.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

The card turned out perfectly. I think the Happy Birthday and the pocket watch combined very well.

Hope your family are all well.
