Old Chap Z-fold

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new email follower :o)

 This is the z-fold card that I made for my brother-in-law's 50th.

I used papers from the Teresa Collins 'He Said, She Said' 6x6 pad and the largest piece with the clocks is from the Winnie in Wonderland collection by Polkadoodles.
Each piece is edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

I stamped down the side of the middle panel with the clock and greeting in the Chronology stamp set from Papermania - I think it was a freebie in the Docrafts Creativity magazine.

For the speech bubbles I used a Sizzix die - Modern Surrealists "Thought Talk Bubbles" - and stamped in the words with Black Memento. The Happy Birthday is a Lili of the Valley stamp, the typed alphabet is from Hobby Art and the last one is Retro Alphabet by My Sentiments Exactly.

I mutilated the capital C stamp (you get two of them) by cutting the bottom a little because it was looking like a G to me.

The pointy finger is a Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers die - I shaded the shirt cuff with distress ink using the edge of a piece of card, then coloured the suit cuff with an alcohol marker.

The numbers are from the Tonic Squeezebox set of dies.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Crafty Catz #381 Anything Goes option not a card
Sisterhood of Crafters  Boys to men
Penny Black and More  For the boys

Love this one Katrina - good male card inspiration is very hard to find. You've used a real assortment of products here but they all go together so well.
