My Dad's 70th Birthday card

Hi everyone,

I am sure you will all agree that I am the worst daughter in the whole wide world, I forgot to send my lovely father a 70th Birthday card on time (he's holidaying over the other side of the world at the moment). I'm not even a couple of days late, I'm a whole month and a half late!! Whoops!! I am really hoping he forgives me when he sees the effort that went into making this card for him.

This was created with a larger sized card so I had plenty of room for all my little sentiments which were printed in different fonts from my computer. I did a lot of inking around everything to give it an aged look, hope you like it, I know it is very different from my usual style.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Scrapbook Boutique - Photo inspiration - inspired by the colours
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - J is for ... Just a little bit late (hehe), "July" card for "June" Birthday  
Simon Says Stamp (Wed) - Emboss it (cogs and pocket watch are heat embossed)

Thank you so much for dropping by and extra special thanks to my lovely followers and visitors that leave some beautiful comments for me, they warm my heart.
