Last Friends with Flair for 2012!


     Well now, here we are with the end of 2012 fast approaching.  I wanted to finish off the year with a bang, so I got to creating.  I decided to use the current Unity Kit of the Month, called "Everyday Fairytale".  It has such dreamy stamps!  If you would like to link up a Unity creation for a chance at a prize, please check out the blog for details.


     I kept both of my cards in the same color scheme.  Here is what was used:

White and Chocolate card stock
Designer papers are from Basic Grey's, Konnichiwa 6x6 pad
Inks are TH Distress Inks in Broken China, Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs
Accents are square paper doily, pearls, and glittered brown nail heads

I decided to also enter this over at the Basic Grey Challenges, where it is an Anything Goes.
Might as well add these to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, that is Anything Goes!

     I hope you and your family start off 2013 happy and healthy!  I love when you pay visits!
