The Time Please Sir

Today I wanted to share with you another one of Simply B Stamps' gorgeous Classic Collection Steampunks; his name is Clocks.

Love all the floaty ruffles and details on his jacket!  I’ve made this one into a tri-shutter card, the first time I’ve tried this card type.  I followed a tutorial by Bonnie at the Craftiblog and this is what it looks like opened out.  
My card has lots of ‘manly’ embellishments on it as this is for a 70th birthday for a friend’s father.  I found the very appropriate sentiment in my stash, it’s a sticker from CTHM.

I think this card shows how versatile the Steampunk images over at Simply B Stamps, nothing out there or gruesome about this sage old gentleman.  In fact, he looks like Father Time to me and just perfect for a milestone birthday.

Im entering this card into the Crafty Catz challenge, which is an anything goes one.  Im also entering it into the Left of Center use a digi (covered) or LOC theme (Steampunk is one so covered that too).
