It's Friday, It's Friends with Flair!

     Here we are again, and another week has passed.  I sure look forward to my Fridays!  I want to share a couple of cards I made during the week, using my Unity stamps.  I figured they would work well for the Friends with Flair linky.


     My first card is using the hope butterfly, which I paper pieced and colored with Copics.  All of my papers are scraps that I am working hard to use up.  The accents are a paper doily, pearls and an unknown sentiment on SU! punches.  The butterfly was in my 100 assorted stamps from a win a while back.  If you link up, you could have the chance to win also!


     Card two is also using a stamp that was included in that bag of 100, and is an adorable mannequin.  Again using scraps, I colored it with Copics, and layered it on a Spellbinders label die. There is a punched border down the side (thanks, Carol), and I added lots of mint ribbon for my bow, topped with a Prima flower.  The metal "best friends" plaque is from K&Co.

     So, as you can see, this week was all pink and girly.  Please stop over at the Unity Blog and show all of the wonderful designers some love.  They do such an outstanding job of inspiring all of us.  If you leave  comments as you follow the links, you might just win a prize!   They also have some special love going on for Helmar glue products.  Be sure to check it out!

I used that dress stamp, too :) I love your cards. The first one is beautiful with the green and pink. SO pretty!

Pretty cards -- I especially like that sweet, girly dress! Also like how you used the patterned paper for the larger size die cut -- I will have to give that a go; I always use plain card stock for the "mat".
