Friends with Flair Friday for Unity!!!!

New Friday fun from Unity Stamp Company! The first 50 peeps that signed up on SCS Unity Forum are participating in FFF, Friends with Flair Friday!!
Start Here at the Unity Blog to find the list of Participating chicks!

I have two cards to show you on this lovely Friday (you have NO clue I am actually writing this thursday..umm guess NOW you do!)
They are my submissions for the Unity Kit of the month challenge!

The challenge is to use your July or August KOM and the colors purple, black, orange and green! Getting in the halloween mood! This is a contest for a FREE kom!!! Woot Woot! Could I use that right now...
On to my cards...
First one features the bird stamp and sentiment from August KOM. I used dp from BasicGrey and K&Company. The edges of all the layers are distressed with grey ink. The circle chipboard piece was inked black and provides a spotlight for the bird. Kind of had a ghoulish effect huh?


Second one uses a stamp from the August KOM and happy day sentiment. I used the image to create a dp panel. I then stamped the image again on kiwi kiss cs and cut out with my circle punch, then painted with pink poinsettia shimmerz blingz. I distressed the edges and added a black ribbon bow.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
It is my little guy Gage's Birthday today! he turned 6 and is starting Kindergarten! He is so excited! It is also my sweet, talented and generous friend Jen's birthday too, Happy birthday chicka! card is on the way!
Enjoy the rest of the Unity goodness!
Till Later!
