Friends with Flair #2

 
     I was able to make a second entry for this weeks Friends with Flair, over on the Unity blog.  This card also uses stamps from the March KOM.  Have you ever started to create and it ends up in a totally different place?  LoL! 

 
     Here is what happened.  I looked to my right sitting at my work space, and I found strips of Micropore tape which I had used for a different project.  the edges had been sponged in pink, and there was white embossing on it.  I thought to myself, lets not waste this!  It really made a cool texture for a background.  The problem came when I started adding stamps and extras, when I could not get a good balance.   So, here it is, and if you look real close you will see a tiny bit of the tape sticking out.  Oui!  The designer paper is from Crate Paper's Fourteen collection.  I even did a bit of paper piecing on my cuppy cake.   We have a doily, a bow made with an SU Bow Builder Punch, fishtail banners, an enamel heart, and some sparkle from a Stardust Pen.

     Thanks for stopping by.
