This card is for today's Unity's Friends with Flair!   I had a little bit of time to stamp once I got home from the movies.  I went to see the latest Twilight movie last night with a group of people.  It was fabulous!  I was alittle wired to say the least.  I came home and whipped up a couple of cards.  For both of my cards I am using Unity's Ippity stamp set called The Simple Things.  I am using the same sentiment on both.   I chose to use two of the three stemmed images that come in this set.    I am using October Afternoon Thrift Store on the first one and Memory Box Jubilee on the second card.   


I decided to combine my cards with The Shabby Tea Rooms Week #16  color challenge.  To use some turquoise, pink, and bright green.  Both cards use these colors, but the patterns and ratios of colors are quite different.  The top one uses more muted turquoise and pink and less green, while the second one uses more bright green, turquoise, and touches of pink on the leaves.  I am also using the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge(MMSC60) for both cards.



Unity Flair!

I have the Unity Friends with Flair Blinkie!  WooHoo!  You found it!  Leave a comment and I will pick one winner and announce here on my blog tomorrow morning and at the SCS Unity Friends with Flair thread who won.  Edited with Winner Information:  The winner is Chriss Blagrave!  Congrats, Chriss.  Please email Jimmi at jimmi.mayo@gmail.com.  


As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

  51. Hi Betty ~ Your cards are too fabulous...I saw the "Eclipse" movie today...Big Time Fan...of course the movie doesn't really do the book justice, it never does...but I have to admit...I cried when that wolf Jacob put his face near Bella...What a wonderful movie...sry...didn't mean to go on and on about the movie, when I should be commenting on your card...just get too into it! Happy 4th to you and yours :)

  52. Wow Betty, You have really done a fantastic job with both of these cards... I really have a hard time with which one I love the best... but would have to say the top one... love the papers... so very sweet and delicate... although I love the colors in the 2nd one too... hard choice... but both are great... love them...

    Hope to be back in full swing next week... son still here ... and loving every minute of it... Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
