A Little Bit Crafty: Man Up!

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my make for our Man Up challenge at A Little Bit Crafty! For this project I used Mister Hueys Spray inks, Memento, Embossing powder. I started by making my own backing card stamping in brown memento with a script stamp and pocket watch stamps by Visable Image. I then sprayed over this with the inks, then cut notches in the edges and ripped and folded it too. I made my main images by embossing these same pocket watches with time aged embossing powder. I mounted this on kraft card and left flashes of this under the backing card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
