Unity FWF - and some flowers!

Good morning! Since it is Friday - I'm playing along with Unity Friends with Flair with this card:


I also thought I would link this up to a couple other challenges - first up the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Spring Flowers:


And then the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge - Three Thirds (Since I used 3 flowers on this card!)


I used another Donna Downey set that I got recently - Donna Poppies. I just LOVE these huge flowers - and can tell they will be getting lots of love! The colors on this card were inspired by a sweet friend's shirt that she wore to Bible Study group a few weeks back. I can home and just SAW this card in my head - so I made it for her to thank her for the blessing she has been in my life.


I used a kraft paper card base, stamped the solid flowers with MFT Kraft ink, then stamped over with the outline stamp with black ink. The sentiment came from the February 2013 Kit of the Month "Let Love Grow".


Since it is almost Mother's Day - I thought I would share this card too...I decided to play around a little with watercolors one evening a while back and try to paint my own flower. Can't say that I am in love with it - but I definitely want to play more! Can't seem to get enough of it! I added the sentiment to this one with the April 2014 Kit of the Month.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!!!

  2. Love the scale of the flowers and the black, white and craft stamping - very neutral and yet dramatic at the same time! So glad you joined us at CAS-ual Fridays!
