Unity Friends With Flair {Jul 15th}

Do you remember Erin's Birthday Blog Hop? I had made a card with the wrong colours. Yes, the wrong colours. I was supposed to use red and kraft but there was not an ounce of either. To surprise Erin, I made her a second card and sent it to her. She received it on Wednesday so I get to show it to you now!

This card uses another Suzi Blu stamp called Party Girl and, yes, I will admit to buying four Suzi Blus with my last order. I've had so much success with them and I love using them! I stamped the image in brown and coloured 'Erin' with Copics before paper piecing her outfit with Echo Park's For the Record Collection. The background and banner were also cut from the same paper collection. The sentiment is from To the Moon & Back which I think has the most versatile sentiments of any Unity set. I love this set for both its images and sentiments!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you all have an absolutely amazing summer weekend!

I have yet to ink up any of my Suzi-blu stamps. That is just wrong, but I don't think I can make them look as fabulous as you do!!!
