Birthday card Tim Holtz style

My oldest son's birthday is this coming Sunday and I just couldn't wait to make him a card using this Picture Wheel Sizzix Alterations Tim Holtz die that I just got from JoAnn's.  I spent a whole day just looking through pictures to find some that represented his 38 years of life.......from birth to becoming a doctor.    I think he'll get a big kick out of it.

I used a lot of Tim Holtz products on this one.........the embossing folder, film strip, spinner, gears and of course the die cut.  All distressed with black soot Distress Ink.  The small checkered cardstock came from a pad of paper from Graphic45 (calendar).  I had just a wee bit to play with but I liked how it tied everything together.

Wonderful card! I like the way you tied "time" into it with the lifetime pics and the bkgrd. I also like the addition of the spinner, checkered corners and the filmstrip. Great work!
