Masculine retirement card

A retirement card for a friend who has decided to retire from the military.  He is taking on a new job and they will likely be looking for a different house as well so lots of changes but in the end everything is falling into place so I coined this phrase just for this card.
I have been wanting to try this technique for a while - pigment ink on the inside of the watches/clock embossing folder and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added some white shimmering pigment ink to the white areas and embossed them with clear embossing powder as well.  I like they way it turned out!!  I printed the watch (digital image from CD) on the card front as well as another to fuzzy cut out and raise over the original image.  I added clear dimensional paint over the watch to create the look of glass and added black cording as well.
Really like this technique and will be playing with it some more - after I move into the new house!!
