Unity Friends with Flair

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

This week, I used Tiny Giggle Grove and a sentiment from June KOM, Perfect in Every Way. AND I used the FTL #59 for the layout on this one. I needed a quick and easy card and this is definitely that! Well, except that I couldn't decide on my circle pieces ("branches") for the tree. I stamped those little circles about 25 times before I settled on the arrangement I have -LOL! BUT, in theory it was quick!!

Here is a close up pic so you can see the scored lines on the right of the panel.

Dont' forget, tonight is the Verve Release party!! I hope to see you there at 6pm Pacific! Lots of chatting, more peeks and prizes.

AND, Hope Stamps Eternal has the new Basic Grey 6x6 pad Releases: Eerie, Eskimo Kisses, and Indian Summer! All completely GORGEOUS! The new Bella Blvd goodies have arrived too: Camped Out, Plastino (my FAV) and Super Stud and in DA HOUSE!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back Sunday with this week's Cupcake Inspiration challenge!

  1. Michelle, you just have to think of it like this, you stamped the circle branches on all those extra paper choices so the next time you want to make this tree, you will have plenty of selection to already choose from! I love this card by the way!
