Friends with Flair

    
 
     Happy Friday morning, Friends!  I haven't been making good use of my blog lately, so I need to change that in the new year.  Here is a card I created, using the December KOM, called Happy Love Day.  Please be sure to visit all of the great designers that have linked up this week, for Friends with Flair, over on the Unity Blog.

     For this card, I used black card stock, and a layer of designer paper from K&Co.  Since it is time for love cards, I brought out my adorable paper doilies.  My image and sentiment were stamped in Memento ink, and the shades of yellow were added with Copic marker.  I found a piece of  yellow crochet trim, to add, as well as Washi tape with measurements.  My gem flourish was a gift from a friend.

     That is it for me, right now.  It is a snow day here in PA, so I may have extra time to create!

This card is just fabulous. I love the yellow/black combo for love cards. I think I always liked it a little bit but seeing this gorgeous card of yours, I Now really like that combo a lot. Just lovely, Mary Anne. I'm hoping you had a terrific holiday season with the new little addition to your family. We had 8-12 inches depending on the drifts in our yard. Nice, light and fluffy, so that was good. Enjoy your crafting day.
