You Make and a Butterfly

The sketch this week from Get Sketchy:
 
We are sponsored by AIFactory.  Isn't this image adorable!  The prize is 3  monthly Digi Kits, you gotta come over and play!

I used some Unity stamps for the background clouds and the sentiment.  I love how no matter what 'feel' I am going for, whether whimsical like this one or more classy like a wedding card, Unity always has the stamps to suit my needs!
  

Pattern Paper: D K & Company

The sketch this week from Inspirational Card Sketches:
  
The Color Challenge from Color Dare:
  
I used some Scarlet Lime, Studio Calico scraps along with an Amy Butler journaling spot.  The stamp, of course is Unity.  The gems are from Kaisercraft.
 

To see more of the Friends with Flair participants start at Angela's blog.  Remember, find the hidden blinkie and you have a chance to win a bunch of free stamps!

Now for a toot.  I have a couple of cards picked up for the July 2010 issue of CARDS magazine along with a project in the Stamping Idea book - so happy here!
