Tim and Melody together...

Okay, now just because I put that title don't be spreading any rumor's about Tim Holtz and Melody Ross..heehee!  I put that title because it's Friends with Flair Friday,  and I used products from both of these talented artists today!

Now, if you didn't start at the Unity Stamp Co blog...STOP, please go back and don't miss the creative spark of all these gorgeous Unity fans!  And, one of these gorgeous ladies has THE "blinkie" that could win you a bunch of some yummy Unity red rubbah!

So, for my card I had a few challenges in mind, including the latest Unity Hip Hop sketch challenge.

I was so excited to use my new Unity--Melody Ross "Brave Girl" set...LOVE IT!and as I was playing around today, I embossed a brown paper bag with one of Tim's new embossing folders called Patchwork AND the top edge is from one of his new Alterations dies "On the Edge"...LOVE THEM! 

I lightly sponged my blue ink to make the embossing pop a little, while faux stitching with my white gel pen to match the double stitched ribbon.

I used my circle punch on the front of the card, so I could pop up some birdies that are actually inside of the card.  If you read this far...sorry for being too much of a chatty Cathy!

My other challenges are:

Color Throwdown #97 (I used all three colors)
Caardvarks June Challenge to use wet and/or dry embossing (my Tim Holtz embossing folder)
Wee Memories Challenge #10--In Stitches (my faux stitching)

I appreciate that you took the time to come by today...

Love the stitching, I need to get one of those pens, b/c I keep seeing that look and going "me like". Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. I gave my card to some friends with a new house, so you're right- it had a purpose, even if I didn't love it.
