Couple of different cards!

Welcome to my Friends with Flair!

The sketch this week from Mojo Monday:
The beautiful inspiration from Color Create:

Which is similiar to the colors in the Color Combo Galore challenge:

For my card I also incorporated the Some Odd Girl challenge - ribbons and rubons; Cupcake Craft Challenge - lace; Papertake Weekly (old (spiral punch, new - stamp, borrowed - sketch, blue - color) and finally the Fab'N'Funky challenge - favorite colors - love these colors!.

I used some scraps (not too much left) of my Fancy Pants Road Show papers - I so love these papers!  The butterfly is from the Unity Stampin Store Kit.



The challenge this week from Wild Flower Wednesday is a sketch challenge:


I incorporated the All Things Unity challenge  and the Create with Connie and Mary challenge - Back to School.  I made a card to go with the notebook I made yesterday and will leave them on my colleagues desk before school starts.  Again the paper is from My Grafico, the letter stickers are from October Afternoon.  I used one of my favorite Unity stamps - the ledger stamp along with a school house.
Be sure to begin at the beginning of the Friends with Flair at the Unity blog, look for the hidden blinkie and perhaps win some free stamps!
