Always Bring Your Own Sunshine



Happy Friday Friends With Flair!!!!

So loving my Unity Stamp Company October KOTM, although I haven't used very many images yet.  I intend to...just haven't had the chance. 



This card is just chock-full of shimmery goodness but it's just not presenting itself here.  Oh, well.



This one isn't much better.  Oh, well.

I went for the Trifecta with this week's Design Dollies challenges on this card - color: black & turquoise; elements: distressing; sketch:




The circle element is covered with crackle medium.  Most everything is either crinkled, crumpled, docked, inked, and/or shredded.  Like the mat?  It's a piece of paper towel hit with some turquoise and black Glimmer Mist.  The black mat is docked all over the edges with the Stampin' Up perferator tool and then I rubbed turquoise Stickles in the marks. 

Details:  Paper - Stampin' Up!, The Paper Company; Unity Stamp Company stamps; Ink - StazOn, ColorBox, VersaMark; Stampendous embossing powder; Prima Flowers; Stampin' Up! distressing tool; Michaels ribbon; Stickles; Marvy Uchida punch; Unknown twine & butterfly bead; Bounty paper towel.

OMG - Did you SEE the new Unity Donna Downey stamp set??!!  How about the T-Shirts?  And there's an amazing 30% off sale going on, too!!!

Hope you have a great Friday and wonderful prospects for the coming weekend!

Heidi
