Steampunk Pocket Watches life moments Card

Created this card with a Steampunk theme using mostly Tim Holtz products.

Used TH  core'dinatins cardstock as top layer and base. Embossed top layer w/ TH Pocket Watches embossing folder. Used TH sander on embossing. Used TH paper distresser on top layer edges. For chipboard I recycled Suddenly Salad Pasta box cardboard embossing the Pocket Watches on the cardboard. Punched out one chipboard Pocket Watch using Stampin' Up circle punch. Attached chipboard Pocket Watch using TH Long Fastener (brad). Used Adirondack Metallics Acryllic Paint Dabber Gold on the chipboard Pocket Watch. Stamped sentiment & cut out sentiment tag w/ TH Leaf Blueprint stamp/die Set. Added the Paper Studio Clock Focus Twill ribbon.
