Male "Cogs & watches" birthday card

 Here is the first of 2 male cards I have been commissioned to make. I'm not one for sticking with just 1 supplier products for a card so there is a complete mish- mash with this card. 
To start, the backing card has been run through a mask from Clevercut. Then I rubbed over it with gilding wax from Creative Expressions. You can pick up a good selection of Creative Expression products from Julia Watts  shop on Amazon. I used "Cast Bronze" & "Patina". This was my first time of using them and I love them. I need more, no honest, I do :-) 
The watch die is from Papermania and can be purchased from Craftsite  I cut the parts I needed from black card stock and used a small piece of gold mirri card to put behind the watch face. Now, I don't have any proper flake glue (you wouldn't think I went to a craft show at Ally Pally yesterday would you !!). So, I thought I would try using my regular Cosmic Shimmer dries white glue on a piece of cut & dry foam. Now, whilst it didn't do the job as you'd see on the telly, the flakes DID stick to some bits. I then rubbed more gilding wax over the top & I love the effect. So, its not the right glue, but then again, its not the wrong glue either. 
 The stamped sentiment is from the wonderful Visible Image  The complete set is called "Time After Time". It is such a fantastic set and probably won't stray very far from my work area in future. I stamped it onto a piece of brown card using versamark and embossed with ultrafine gold detail embossing powder. Then tore the edges of the card and again used the gilding waxes round the edge
The cogs and brads are again from papermania and I used the same technique as I did for the watch above.

The whole design has been set a Papermania Kraft card stock

I'd like to enter this card into the
