Hope everyone is having a FLAIR-icious day! And getting lots of Unity goodness from all the wonderful Friends with Flair! For the complete list of the Friday Friends with Flair be sure to stop by the Unity Blog
I only have a simple card to show you this week ~ it's been quite a doozy 'round here ~ school started & the assistants did not appreciate the new bed time or wakey-wakey time either! So, temper have been less than steller to put it mildly! Not so great for the creative process... but luckily I had to make a 'male' birthday card (in only 30 minutes ~ ha!). And since he is a member of the military ~ no girly stuff was allowed ~ eek! And this is what I finally decided on ~ I love the Stylin Stars set ~ it is quite manly ~ don't ya think? (at least these stars are...) As for the sentiment ~ that was a bit tougher ~ but this one from Birthday Chic didn't come across to frilly. The background is embossed & stamped with Brillance (Platinum) for a bit of shine... and I threw some clear embossing powder on the sentient Su Garden Green as well.
I love how a bit of embossing adds such a touch of class to an otherwise simple card! Hope everone has a super-duper weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
