Unity FWF Blog Hop {Feb 11th}

Welcome to the Friends With Flair blog hop! Be sure to start at the Unity Blog so you don't miss any of the wonderful inspiration today's participants have prepared for you. Look for the FWF blinkie as you hop along and leave a comment on that blog for a chance to win 25 random Unity stamps!

I've been meaning to try this simple frame tutorial by Birgit Edblom for the longest time and finally came up with what I think is the perfect scene for it. This gave me the opportunity to ink up My Dear and use a sentiment from the Loolah Collection. While creating the frame, I stamped on the frame itself before adhering it in place. For the centre, I stamped the large rose in pink before stamping the cyclist and sentiment in navy. The lovely vines that are wrapped around the edges of the white frame is the same image stamped in white on the navy card base. I love this navy and pink combination and will certainly be using it again!

Ah, this is so Parisian...I can almost hear an accordion playing in the background (you know, you should totally add accordion music to your blog). Love the subtle look of the stamped rose and of the white stamped on the navy. Speaking of which, navy and pink? Hmmm...may have to try it!
