Dream and Believe

Hi, isn't everyone so glad it's Friday??  I sure am, and Friday also means a time to participate in the Unity Friends with Flair.  Yay!!

I've got  a simple card to share, with images from Unity's April KOM.   If you have not tried the Unity KOM, you won't be disappointed, it's fabulous value.   Here's my card:


The cardbase was embossed with Sizzix BasicGrey's Powdered Sugar folder.  I stamped the harlequin background onto a ledger paper and adhered  the strip onto the card.  The focal image was stamped on white cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers (R24, YG01, E11, YR12, R02 and B00).  I also distressed the edges a little with Distress Ink Scattered Straw.  Then I stamped the three butterflies using various inks in Red, Green and Blue.  I added some blings onto the green butterfly.

I look forward to see all the lovely FWF's entries.  And, for all of you who celebrate Easter, I hope you'll have a fabulous weekend remembering the death and resurrection of Christ.

Have a wonderful weekend!





Paper : PTI Cardstock
Ink : Memento Tuxedo Black, Rhubarb Stalk, Summer Sky and Pear Tart, Distress Inks Fired Brick, Scattered Straw, Pumice Stone
