Unity sentiments- one of my fave ways to make a card




















I signed up to be part of Unity's friend's with flair which happens every Friday. It's a great reason to dig out my fave Unity stamps and get them inky. I love their great big sentiments that are perfect to base a card around. I used some of my SU patterned paper- I should say forced myself to use from my stash tee hee. I have a hard time using up paper when it's so pretty. But there is no sense just letting it get dusty I suppose  :) I punched out some butterflies to match the sentiment, added ribbons and crystals and VOILA! It was so quick and easy that even my hubby was shocked the card was made and photograped already lol. I usually colour with my copics which takes much longer so the freedom of just inking and stamping is so nice sometimes. I hope you all have a great Friday and a fab weekend! Andrea
