FWF Friday!!!















It's a great Friday!! This first card is for my best friend's new GRANDDAUGHTER!! I can't wait to go see her!! I was so excited that these BRAND NEW Unity stamps Welcome Baby were in my mailbox this week!! And since I have been playing challenges too I made sure that I used 2 images for the Paper Sundaes Challenge #55 (the butterfly and the background plus I also used 2 sentiment stamps) all from the same gorgeous kit!!

This card is for the Simon Says Stamp & Show Embossing challenge.  I used an embossing folder to make the big polka dots but didn't emboss the middle area where the stamped sentiment is.  The stamp is from Unity set Inside and Out. I used the copic airbrush to darken the outside edges and lots of yummy glimmer mist for the sparkle and speckles LOL!!  The shaped card was created using my new Grand Spellbinders die.  I am so excited to have some new toys to create with!! so much fun and a great way to kick the winter blahs!!I love the way this one sparkles and shimmers in real life!!

Both are lovely. Beautiful shade of pink on the round card and clever way to use the embossing by leaving the middle plain for the sentiment. Beautiful ribbon and sparkly flourish too. Great work on the embossing challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show,
