Introducing the first FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY! Unity Stamp Company is featuring links to the blogs of some of their biggest fans. Check out the Unity Blog for the list of links. I made this card for the September KOTM contest. The challenge was to use the colors black, orange, green and purple. I used a black card base and stitched on 3 patterned papers using my sewing machine. I colored the bird image from the August '09 KOTM with sharpies and my Stampin' Up! markers. I cut it out and used pop dots to give it dimension. I also have a piece of black ribbon behind the image. In the lower corner I made faux buttons using matching Stampin' Up! cardstock and tied orange thread through the holes. I drew some stems to mimic the flowers in the stamped image. I love how it turned out. Thanks Katy for helping me out!
I hope you have a great long weekend! I am off inspecting my new house today! We are moving mid October!
