Birthdays - Time Keeps Ticking Away!

When it comes to having birthdays, my Dad always says "The alternative is grim!"  I guess I would rather have a birthday than not, although I've converted to having anniversaries of birthdays!!  This card really focuses on TIME, which seems appropriate on a birthday, where we celebrate how much time has passed!

Photobucket - Birthday Time Card
I have been inspired by Michelle Zindorf's tutorials and have been bitten with the emboss-resist bug! Images in the main area were stamped, clear embossed, colored with Prismacolor pencils, colored over with a Versamarker, then clear embossed again. I worked from the foreground to the background, so the large clock face in the center and the weathered wood background were stamped last. I guess you can tell how much I love collage stamping and this emboss-resist technique makes it so much fun!

I love this "It's About Time" stamp set (SU), especially because the clock hands are on two separate stamps so you can set them on the right month and day. They are showing from inside the card through two large hole punches (upper left and lower right corner).

Of course you can't forget the envelope!

Stamps include It's About Time and Circle of Friendship (SU), Roman Numeral Clock Face (Magenta), Weathered Wood (Judikins), Spectacles and "As time goes by" stamp from Michaels

This card is also my entry for Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge #27:
Esther 4:14 “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?"

Make a card or project using a time piece or in some way denoting time or the passage of time. Let imagination be your guide! There are no rules!
I think this card is all about the passage of time! What do you think?  And remember - birthdays are good for you - the more you have, the longer you live!
