Birthday card for nephew

Here's a  quick card I made for Tom, my adult nephew. His all-time favourite brewski is Keith's India Pale Ale.

For the background, I used a cuttlebug folder "Clockworks" on Tim Holtz Coordination paper, sanded the embossed areas, and sponged with Tea Dye distressed ink.

The image is "Beerafella" by Stamping Bella stamps, coloured with Copic markers. I have used this stamp several times and have always thought that the fella looks sort of strange with stick arms, so I freehand drew in thicker arms with a black Micro pigma pen....he still doesn't have hands though....

Crystal Glaze adds dimension to the beer bottles. I typed a Keith's label in tiny print and added it to the box.

Die-cut clock has "hands" pointing to 5 o'clock (Tim Holtz game pieces), spellbinders fancy tag,  and verse is done on my computer.

I think Tom will get a kick out of this card!
