Black, White and a Bit of Colour

Yesterday was my FIL's Birthday so it is kind of fitting that my post today is a birthday card, which is something I haven't done a post of in a while.  I have used two of my favorite Unity KOTM Stamps, the sweet birthday cupcake image and the harlequin background.

Athough it is Saturday here in Australia, it is Friday still in the states so this is also my post for Unity Friends with Flair, a weekly post and link up where you will find lots of other Unity Lovers showcasing their work and Unity Stamps.  I just love visiting all the other crafters blogs.

There was a little bit of technique involved - Masking, Embossing, Punching, Colouring and Popping Up for Dimension.  But overall I found this quite quick to make.

We are celebrating my FIL's birthday today with a birthday lunch and here is what we are giving my him as a present. 


You may remember last month I did a Steam Punk Class at a Retreat I attended.  The interactive layout (all the cogs/wheels turn) we did at the class was designed to sit on a stand and has a photo of my FIL with his first grandchild.  Luke (grandson) is now 18 so it is quite fitting that this layout features a flying clock as Time Really Does Fly.

Thanks for stopping by.

The styles are so different, it looks like two different people did them. I love the color combo and the loopies on the first. GREAT JOB. The second:it's artsy/cool. I LOVE THE LOOK. I wish that I could come up with something like that. Maybe some day...
