Night and Day

It's time for another Friday Friends with Flair over at the Unity blog, and this is the card I'm entering. I'm using the Unity Itty Bitty stamp called "Day and Night." I thought it would be a great image to use for OWH cards, so this card will be going into my next box heading to OWH. I paired it with some Lilybee Autumn Spice dsp and added a few different colored mini brads to the clock centers. The image was stamped with early espresso ink on very vanilla, and matted with early espresso card stock. It's hard to see in the photo, but I  embossed the strip of dsp with a CB Clockworks ef, and added some saddle striped chocolate ribbon for the final touch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Friday!

What a great use of this stamp set! I love the colors that you chose...and this is one of my favorite SOTW images...unfortunately this is one that 'wandered away' during a crop I went to last year...:( I love the additions of the brads!
