Geared Up Happy Birthday

Hi Krafters!
Do you sometimes find yourself putting so much emphasis on a project it ends up taking much longer than anticipated? I can admit I do! I don’t know about you, but my crafting time is very limited and I do not have time to fuss about embellishments or whatnots! So I suggest to you, let your pattern paper work for you J
There are some gorgeous papers out there, but sometimes we can’t see it because the paper is almost completely covered. In today’s project, I decided to let the paper shine through and I kept the embellishments to a minimum.
I used the awesome Tattered Time by DCWV. I enjoy using this paper when I make masculine cards! Not that the paper needed any help, I used the Sprightly Sprockets Spellbinder Dies. I used Inka Gold to “distress” them a bit. I had a clock that I stamped on transparency that was left over from a different project. I embossed the sentiment with Caesar’s Gold embossing powder by Lindy’s Stamp Gang. I punched that out with an EK Success punch and that was it!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project! I also want to say thank you to all of my new followers! It is because of ALL of you (faithful and new followers) that I have the desire to continue to create and share! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
