Looking Back in Time!

Just wasn't sure what to do for this young man. Decided on the Tim Holtz man and the clock. Looking back in time I thought was as good as anything for a Ninetieth birthday and the giver and receiver were delighted with it so that was a relief!   Have used the clock many times for special birthdays and this time used the clock embossing folder too. Sandpapered the embossing just a tad, Used distress inks on the Kraft card and ruffed up the edges.
