Friends With Flair Friday!

Hey everyone... It's Friday and that means I get to do my very first

Unity's

Friends With Flair

I finally received both my November and December Kits
just before Christmas...or was it just after??
Ummmm
......Anyway, I am so excited that I get to ink them up
and here is my first Friends With Flair Creation for the year!

I decided to use Mercy's Sketch # 56
cause it's such a cute sketch and needs to be used....





And this is my card....



It's a little different from the sketch, I hope they don't mind too much!
I used the Balloon from the December KOM and
paper pierced the flowers with some October Afternoon DP.
Then I cut out the balloon and mounted it over the edge..




I used the "adventurous" sentiment underneath.
It went a little smudgy... but not too much!



So that is my first card for Unity's

Friends With Flair

This is beautiful Donna! What do you use when doing your ink distressing? I ask because when I use The Walnut ink I never get those subtle gorgeous results that you do (maybe that is why you are the master of ink distressing, in my eyes!!) :-)Traci
