Using My June KOM

 
     The Friends with Flair link is up, and I had this little card to share this week.  I really did not get to play with my June kit of the Month from Unity, all that much.  I guess I should be posting patriotic, but my heart was saying birds and wildflowers!

     My bird, Queen Ann's Lace, and sentiment are all from the June kit.  I stamped with Memento Ink, and added Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio, Mown Lawn, and Broken China.  For embellishments I added wrinkled ribbon which I hand dyed and scrunched, tiny Prima flowers with mini brads, and a big button which I received free in one of my Unity orders.  The designer paper used is from Basic Grey, called Indie Bloom.  The sentiment is cut with a classic circle SB die.

     Have a wonderful 4th of July, and please remember, if you have pets, fireworks can be totally devastating to them.  Keep them safe!

What a pretty friendship card with that great bird image. I love that background dsp too - wonderful card!
I know all too well about dogs and fireworks - my friend's MIL came to her July 4th party many years ago and as night fell, they set off fireworks. Her elderly dog was so frightened, he ran off and was never found :( Keep your pets indoors where they'll be safe!
Happy 4th to you my friend, make it a great one!
