Birthday Time

              This is for a masculine birthday.  Started with Kraft cardstock as the base.  I then used white card stock and ran it through the cuttlebug using a 'gears' embossing folder.  I blended distressed inks over it using Vintage Photo, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.  I found a nice piece of matching paper from DCWV.  I cut a large gear out with my Circut and stamped the clock image (Tim Holtz) on that.  I then coated the entire gear after stamping with clear embossing powder to give it some texture and shine (which I have to say came out awesome)
On the one card I tied string and put the flag under the clock ... on the other I added a flag using a brass brad.

Here is a close up

I would like to add these to the following challenges if I may.
