A Little Distressed


     Today I want to add my creation to the Friend with Flair linky, over on the Unity Blog.  This is my favorite part of Friday's!  Please be sure to check out all of the amazing work that is posted there.

     I also created this card with the new challenge at Joan's Gardens #29 in mind.
Here are Joan's requirements:

Use purple and green.
Make a thank you card.
Include a bird.
Use music in your theme.

     Here is what I used:

Stamps:  Unity (bird) from Life Becoming, Clear Dollar (thanks)
Ink: Distress Ink  Seedless Preserves
Embossing:  Craft Too music folder inked
Card stock:  White, Fresh Asparagus Pure Luxury
Designer Paper:  basic Grey Plumeria
Embellishments:  Chip Board frame, K&Co Tags to Go, pearl headpin, edged ribbon, paper roses, punched leaves

     Okay, that's it for now.  Have to keep shutting down the computer due to bad storms.  May not get to do much commenting until tomorrow.  We really need this rain, so I will not complain.  Have a wonderful, creative, and safe day!

Stay safe from the storms, we had a "cool" front come through :) It is now only 98, but....but it is dry heat :) Love the card with all the layers and the embossing in the background. Love how you did the bird in 3D and the music notes. Have a great weekend.

Lovely design Mary Anne and love the music notes on the background. Linda and I went to a craft show in Charlotte with Olga and Patti on Saturday and were thinking how fun it would be to meet up with you at one. Perhaps one day :))))
