Friends with Flair

Hi everyone!  Today I am joining in with the Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop!  There is a master list of all the 50 designers participating in the FWF this week, so take a lookie at the Unity Blog for links to everyone playing today.

My card uses the fabulous stamp set and October 2010 Kit of the Month, Take Time to Laugh.  I colored in the letters lightly to coordinate with the pattern paper.  The AMAZING paper is from Webster's Pages, Sweet Santa.  I love that you can use it for more than Christmas!  I always seem to forget to use the images on the paper AS an image on my cards.  I love the vintage-y look of this and have to do it more. 
The gorgeous flowers are from Prima (of course) and I used a touch of silk ribbon and memory thread to embellish them.  I created the pattern paper circle frame using the Spellbinder circle dies. You can see an example of how I made the circle frame in this blog post.  The photo of my card was removed for publication, but the picture of the Nestabilities is still there.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!  I'll leave you with a close up picture.
