It's Time for Unity Friends With Flair

(If you have arrived here for the Daisy Doodles Celebration Hop, please click here to head on to the post.)

It's Friday, and time for another Unity Friends with Flair.  Please join us and comment because you could win some Unity stamps.  Check out all the participants here.

Today, I'm sharing a card with an image from the May Kit of the Month set.  If you like the image and the kit, you can visit the Unity website to find out more and how you can subscribe.

Here's the kit and the image I used is circled in red:


Here's my card:


For a closer look, click on the image

I started by stamping the image with Memento Rich Cocoa on a pink cardstock and coloured the heart with Copic Marker RV11, a dusty pink.  I cut out the image using Spellbinders Labels 12.  I made another cut on the music notes paper with Labels 12.  Then I adhered the music notes patterned paper onto the cardbase with pop dots (1/8") and line up the cut image and adhered it to the cardbase, giving it like a shadow box effect.  I also made a paper flower with the same patterned paper (using a 1-3/4" circle punch) and adhered it underneath the heart together with a lace trim and baker's twine.  Then I cut a frame using the same pink cardstock and adhered it to the patterned paper as shown. Lastly added a row of pearls to finish off the card.

Thank you for visiting me today.  I hope you will enjoy viewing and visiting all the FWF entries.
Have a lovely weekend!
