100 Years Old Card

Ooops, no actually, the card isn't that old, it's only a few hours old, but it's for a hundred year old gentleman, (I was asked to make it) So, my attempts of tidying up my crafty space have gone right out the window again, and I'm now in twice as much mess. (Yay!) 
Here's the card. It's 8x8. I've used a mixture of papers, My Minds Eye, The cars were a freebie from a magazine and the Prima Botanical is a 6x6 paper-stack which came free from  Simply Cards and PaperCraft a few months back. 
Most of the embossing Darice folders came from Crafter's Companion and the little clock charm came with a set from Craft's Beautiful. I've used lots of different shades and plain/embossed mirri/matt gold card for the cog's
and just built them up around the sides. I embossed the clock paper with a clock emboss folder and then attacked it with some TH Vintage Photo

The Font  I've used is a freebie, (I've linked it before) it's called Amazone BT DOwnload it HERE
That's about it. Thank you for stopping by!
