12 Tags of 2014 - January

I am always inspired when I see Tim Holtz's tags.  This month I am determined to play along.  I didn't make a tag, though, as I have created a card with similar elements:

I do not have the pocket watch frame die so I used the picture wheel die instead.  I cut it again and trim the outer part then I embossed the middle part and employed the industrial technique.

For the slots I stamped each one with a letter to create my sentiment "Happy B Day!"  Since it is hanging off the side I have just enough slots for it.  I have had the rub-ons and stickers for a while but it is the first time using them.  I'm afraid the picture didn't capture the type charm.  It has the letter "R" because the birthday guy's first name begins with an "R". 

It was certainly fun to play along the 12 Tags of 2014.  I do hope to participate in the upcoming ones.

My card is linking up to the following:
