Large Birthday Card

This is the card I have made for DS2. I can't believe he is 20 !!!!!!

I smooshed distress inks around the edge of the 8" card blank, then overstamped in one of the darker colours. Then I added a 6" sheet of 'Timepiece' paper, and it sat in my 'cards to complete when I get inspiration' box for a while.

I didn't want to cover up too much of the lovely backing paper, so opted for two panels - the bottom crackled panel was smooshed and overstamped, while the top panel was stamped with a vintage clocks image and oversmooshed :-) Then I die cut the flourishes and sentiment tags, added the pearls and there it was, finished!

Hope he likes it :-)
