Happy 50th Birthday Chris!

One of our dearest friends celebrated his 50th birthday on Australia Day (26th January)

Here is the card I made for him.  He is a keen photographer, hence the theme of the card.

CraftROBO has been used to cut all elements of this card.
I used the font Bauhaus 93 for Title, Arial for 50. 
The camera was a clipart image from the net, which I traced using RoboMaster.
I wanted to incorporate some fireworks on the inside, but that didn't pan out, but I did use the stars from a fireworks GSD file by einnej
Publisher was used to create the montage of photos (photos are from 1979 through to 2009)

I can't remember where I got the Birthday greeting or the negative strip from - if anyone knows, please let me know - it would be from either craftrobomegastore or one of the wishblade forums??
EDITED:  Thanks Cheryl! - The negative image & birthday greeting are from the SkatKutz disc that came with the Robo!

I also made a gift card holder - he is hoping to start a vegie garden and will need some supplies so we have given him a Bunnings voucher.
I have made this gift card holder with the CraftROBO as well ;-)

Cuttlebug used to create white background panel, cut with deckle edge spellbinder dies and embossed with 'Victoria' folder.  The wheelbarrow & broccolli were from the yahoo groups wishblade forums

Gold heat embossed streamers

I am really pleased with how these items turned out and we are looking forward to catching up with the Birthday Boy this weekend.

I am going to submit the birthday card for BizzyBecs Creatalicious Challenge #6 - No Stamped Images
