Love Potion #9


I broke out an older Unity Store kit to create this Valentine with non traditional colors.  I will be entering this over at the Unity Blog for the Friday, Friends with Flair entry.  I am also going to enter this at Joan's Gardens, and if you would like to join in that fun challenge, please go here to check out all of the details.


The Unity Store Kit that I used was from October 2009.  I just love the little test tubes and the saying, and the flourish I used on the frame was also in this kit.  I figured that shades of teal were non traditional colors.  I used a new Sizzix embossing folder called Diamond, on my frame.  My designer paper is super old 8 1/2 x 11 paper by Current, of all places!  I sponged the edges with one of the Winter Limited Edition Distress Inks called Evergreen Bough.  The images were highlighted with a Sakura Stardust pen.  For my embellishments I used a lace bow, teal pearls, Prima flowers, and some pretty pearl and gem centers.

That's it for me this morning.  Waiting to see what this crazy weather is going to do, and then think about heading out to work.  TGIF!  Hope you have a fun weekend planned.

Mary Anne,
I'm finally in on this one. I can't comment on the others as it will not let me in. I love those boots! This card is fantastic! I love everything about it. Those swirls, test tubes and the sentiment.

This is so cute. And as a teen of the 60's I remember the song blaring from the jukebox on a "45".

Great use of all the elements.
