Unity Friends with Flair!

     Good morning, my dear friends and fellow stampers!  I hope everyone had a super holiday, and that we are all ready for 2012 to burst onto the scene.

   
      This morning I would like to share a card I created with my December Kit of the Month, from Unity. I have linked it up on the Unity Blog and the Friends with Flair post.  It is a rather simple card, but I am loving how it came out.  From the time the kit arrived, I was drawn to these glasses!

     My card base is Soft Sand, Pure Luxury card stock, and I inked the background stamp from the kit with the Limited Edition, TH, Winter Distress Inks.  They are the best colors, and so glad Santa brought them!  The sentiment and glasses were both stamped with Versafine black ink.  I cut out the glasses and coated the lenses with Crystal Lacquer, then popped them off the card.  A row of coordinating buttons were added.

     That is it for me today.  Hubby is on vacation, so we will see what we get into.  If you have time, please stop over to the Unity Blog and check out all of the creations!  It's an awesome place to visit!
