Birthday wishes

Today is a special day!!  It is the beginning of a month long Blogaversary celebration for Jo's Scrap Shack!!   

Jo has been running this challenge blog for 6 years!   What a milestone!  So to celebrate, some of us on the Design Team will be sharing birthday-themed projects throughout the month.  I'm the first one up.  I actually joined Jo's team two years ago at this time.  She asked me to participate in her blog hop May of 2016 and also asked me to join the Team; it's been a fabulous 2 years.  Happy Blogaversary, Jo!  Here is my card for your inspiration:
I used two of my favorite Papertrey Ink stamp sets for this one: "The Sweet Life" and "Hands of Time."  I heat embossed the clock face with white embossing powder and then used creamy caramel ink sponged around the image to make it pop.  I die cut the clock hands out of a textured silver paper and sponged on some soot distress oxide ink to antique them up a bit.  Oh, did I mention there will be prizes??  You can't have a celebration without prizes.  So, make sure you head over to Jo's blog for all the details.

Stamps: PTI "Hands of Time" and "The Sweet Life"; Verve "Be Blessed" sentiment
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle; PTI "The Sweet Life" and "Hands of Time"
