Time Flies Birthday

 Hey there, hope you're all well. A brown steampunk birthday guy card for you today.
A9 Card base is Kraft, next layer is a lighter shade of Kraft, clock was cut from a rusty brown card.
Stamps used:
Cornish Heritage Farms by Kim Hughes plaid dragonfly
Chatterbox silhouette dragonflies
Studio Calico Time Flies sentiment
Stamplorations Enjoy the Journey sentiment
Autumn Leaves Happy Birthday and Lucky sentiments
Spellbinders It's Your and Day sentiments
Cornish Heritage Farms plaid background stamp (inside clock behind woman)
Gecko Galz steampunk woman digital image
Sizzix Weathered Clock die
Winning cards digital image from internet
I distressed the edges with a distresser tool and inked them and the clock die cut with Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress inks. I stamped the plaid clock middle and the plaid dragonflies with Versamark and heat-embossed with copper powder. The sentiments were stamped with either Pinecone or Fallen Leaves Versafine Clair and clear heat-embossed. The smaller dragonflies were stmped with Fallen Leaves VFClair. I used Copper Viva Decor Pearl Pen paint and different sized embossing styluses to make the dots. I colored around a few of the words with a Caramel Promarker. The woman was fussy cut and edged with a Black Promarker.
I used this Splitcoaststampers sketch stretched to A9 landscape size.
Inside: a sentiment composed by me in PSE and printed out on Springhill Digital card, cut with a Spellbinders die and then matted with brown card cut with the next largest of the same die.
The back has a black card mat with brown patterned paper scraps on each end and filmstrips of a Gecko Galz digital image that I created in PSE and printed on Springhill Digital card. I added a stamped and punched siggie.
This angle shows a bit of the shine from the embossing and the copper dots.

Thanks for visiting me and stay cool and safe, XOX.

Used stamps from 7 different stamp sets and 6 different brands - see above post for details
I used the brick wall's colors
Copper and clear Heat Embossing
I used the brown color shade of the photo
The dragonflies are stamped repeatedly on card
Woman focal and Winning hand card images
