Passing of time

Hello there,
This is the card I made for my brother's birthday which is in July. I find it hard to make cards for men, the theme for this is time so I hope he likes it! 

Card recipe

7 x 7 dark grey card blank
Medium grey and light grey mats
White card pre-embossed with cogs and clocks and highlighted using Mica Magic
Dark grey to match the card blank for the main topper
Clock embossing folder
John Next Door sentiment stamp
Tim Holtz clock embellishment

I also made a box using the same card stock and a Tonic sentiment, this is below.

I'm entering this for the following challenges:

  1. Men cards are always a challenge for me too. If I make one lighthouse card, I tend to make all men the same card for that year. (That's my secret and it seems to work!) LOL Thanks for joining us at The Crafter's Cafe. Sherri DT
