The Big 50

It's my hubby's 50th birthday :)

I've made a card for him that some might think a little strange.  He loves the character DEATH (Terry Pratchett) and skulls.  So as you can see I've used a SmearedInk grim reaper image.  It's coloured with Copics then fussy cut so I could mount it onto the background I made up.

I've used some black card stock and mounted over it some design paper is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology.  

The clock face is a Tim Holtz Sizzix one cut from black card stock.  Added to this are some black self adhesive gems, a 50 made from glitter numbers/letters from Hobbycraft and a birthday sentiment from Paperchase.

Can't wait to give it to him he's going to love it :)
