Card Club & Day 248

I'm in a card club that meets every other month, and tomorrow's our day.  The challenge for our swap is to make a "cute" (but non-juvenile) birthday cardI've had this set by Stampin' Up! for awhile, and not used it much.  I think it qualifies as adult "cute", even if the sentiment is a little mean.  
The 365 Cards Day 248 challenge is "half and half" - do the sentiment half on the outside, and half on the inside.  (I took that generally, not exactly half.)  This sentiment is in two parts, but I also did an inside sentiment to complete the card.   
The dry embossed background was done with a 5x7 Cuttlebug folder. The gears and clock parts reminded me of "time" and that fits for birthdays with lots of candles. The image was colored with Copic Markers, cut with a Spellbinder's classic oval Nestability, and then the edges were distressed with Wild Honey and Tea Dye Distress Inks.
