FWF and a Hope You Can Cling To card



Whoa, I have been absent from Friends with Flair, haven't I? Well, I'm back to visit today. I figured that if I was going to make a card for a Hope You Can Cling To challenge over at Splitcoast, I might as well get my Unity out and share it with you today.

I decided to go for the challenge calling for something to be hanging or dangling after I colored this image and felt that her neck looked too plain. A couple slits, a heart charm and some EK Success Adornaments fiber and, voila, she has a choker to dress up her outfit (and my card). The scalloped paper in the background is another block from a Girls Paperie 12x12 sheet that I cut up in my previous post.

The sweet girl is a retired Suzi Blu stamp called Love of My Life. (You may have this in your stash.) I felt like a little girl coloring in her coloring book with this image. So fun and relaxing to color. I broke out quite a few Copics for this exercise.


Thanks for dropping in. Enabler alert: If you check out the Unity site, you'll find a new stamp line called Brandy and Emma that features an adorable toddler and her dog and they may just be too cute to resist!

For now, I'm sure there are loads of cute cards to view in this week's blog hop, so enjoy!
