Friday Flair

 
     It is the beginning of a busy holiday weekend, and I wanted to be sure and get my Friends with Flair card posted, over on the Unity blog.  We do a cold meal of ham and all the trimmings, so I was able to complete most of the cooking this morning.  Tomorrow can then be left to egg hunts, and enjoying my sweet little GS.  Sounds like we may need to work between the rain drops here in PA.

     My card is created in a CAS fashion, using the March, Unity Kit of the Month.  I slightly popped up my panels.  My middle panel was created with We R Memorykeepers watercolor washi tapes.  My flower and sentiment were stamped in Dusty Concord Distress Ink, and then colored with colored pencils and mineral spirits with accents done in Copic.  The flower centers were added in Stickles for a bit of sparkle.

     Thanks for the visit.  Now let's celebrate, and be joyful!  Easter blessings!

Very nice card. I like all the layers and the gorgeous flowers. I do hope there are not too many drain drop for you to have to avoid. We are suppose to get 1 inch of snow starting Sunday night. Have a wonderful weekend no matter the weather.

Love your card Mary Anne. Great use of the washi tape and love the image and your coloring on it. VERY pretty!
Also love the idea of a cold meal of ham. Unique and since I love cold ham more than hot ham I think it's a fantastic idea! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
