Friends with Flair Time!


     Here we are again!  There must be more than one Friday in a week, do ya think?  Time to strut our Unity stuff and hook up to the Friends with Flair linky.  This week, my card kind of happened by accident.  I started out to do the sketch of the month over at Unity, and when I was 3/4 finished, I realized that I had not been creating with a KOM, but with a Store Kit.  Ha!  Never fear, we always have Fridays!

     Here is how it went down.  The card consists of  kraft and white card stock, with my designer paper being from  Basic Grey's Picadilly collection. My images are from the Unity store kit called Moments in Bloom, and Naturally You from May 2010.  Love it!  The images were stamped in VersaFine onyx black and clear embossed.  I carefully colored with Copic Markers, and sponged my scene background with VersaMagic inks.   For embellishments, a half paper doily was added to the top and wrapped with stitched ribbon from American Crafts.  Tiny Prima flowers were added, as well as pearl centers.  I added sparkle to the butterfly and turtle shell with a Sakura Stardust Pen.

     Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  We are expecting a huge warm up here in PA, so me thinks there may be some outdoor time in my near future!
