Welcome to Unity's "Friends with Flair" Blog Hop!


***This is my second post for today-please scroll down for this week's Get sketchy card!***
So excited to be participating in my first FWF Blog Hop! I used some of my new {ippity} stamps to make this pretty little card, along with some fun papers from SEI's Play Day collection. The flower is paper-pieced using my favorite flower from the "Now & Always" stamp set. The sentiment is also paper-pieced using the "Just Wanted to Say" set.

Not only do I love the flower on this card, but I also loved making this super-easy layered border. What a great way to show off your border punches! I simply punched three different border strips, inked the edges, then layered them. I used ivory cardstock, but I can't wait to try this using different patterned papers for a fun, whimsical look.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.

One has a special blinkie-and if you leave her a comment you just may win some fun Unity stamps!
