Unity Friends with Flair (04.11.2011)

Hello Unity Peeps!  So glad it's Friday, I've been having a fun week of stamping and sharing some of my favourite stamps and techniques with you.  Today I'm sharing a card with my latest favourite Unity stamp set, can anyone guess???

Here it is:

Yes! It's the latest set from Phyllis Harris featuring Brandy & Emma.  I couldn't contain my excitement when I saw the new line, and I wrote to Andrea G at Unity to tell her Brandy & Emma sets are my kinda stamps!  I'm sure all of you would agree that Andrea is the BEST Cust Service gal.  Love her!!  
Right, here's the stamp set:

A close-up pic of the card:
The sentiment was stamped and cut out with Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle die and coloured with Copic Markers BG10 & BG000.  Pierced a hole at the top and tied some baker's twines through it.
  
Here's another look at the card:


Did I tell you that I got all the four sets?  Yupe I did and will be inking them up soon.  Had to take a break from Christmas cards to make this card. Haha... The patterned papers are from Lily Bee Memorandum collection.
