Friday Friends with Flair

Hi everyone, it's Friday and I have a Friends with Flair Unity card to share with you. Angela has the master list of all the 50 designers participating in the FWF this week! Take a lookie at the blog for more Unity goodness.

My card uses the set Bright and Merry Wishes and the layout is this week's CPS sketch (CPS132). I stamped the ornaments out 2 times and popped up the center piece on dimensionals. I colored them with copics and used my fav silver pearls in the centers and as accents on the panels. I even tied some silver cord thru the tops!

With this sentiment, I couldn't help but use some of the Jolly by Golly Cosmo Cricket 6x6 mini deck. How fun are the colors on this page? The coordinating cardstock I used was New Leaf, Vintage Cream and Not Quite Navy. To accommodate the size of the sentiment, I made this card a bit larger than I normally do. It measures 6.5" x 4.75", and I will use a 5x7 envie. Because of the size of my cardstock (8 1/2 x 11), I had to put the card fold on the side -thus the sharp angle of the picture.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned on Sunday for another fabulous Cupcake Inspiration challenge!!

Card Deets:
Stamps - Mery and Bright Wishes (Unity)
Paper - Vintage Cream, New Leaf (PTI), Not Quite Navy (SU!) and Jolly by Golly (Cosmo Cricket)
Accessories - Rectangle nesties, copic markers, Cream Organdy ribbon, silver cord
