**Friends with Flair Friday with Unity**

Happy Friday the 13th!! I know Halloween is over!!
Today is another Friends With Flair Friday for Unity Stamp Company!!!!
I LOVE seeing all the crafty Unity goodness on Fridays!
Head over to The Unity Blog at 9AM CST to see the list of 50+ blogs participating!!
I made two cards! They go together so I had to make them both!
I knew I wanted to do the Plane, sentiment Flag combo today but I didnt know how to do it...knew a long card, knew blue and pink...lucky me though I was having an online craft session with one of my Best Friends (yes I have 2 Best friends, LOVE that! I have so much LOVE for them both) and she was embossing...lightbulb went off. BUT I goofed up and ended up with an AWESOME mistake!!

Here's what I did, I had my white PTI cs ready to go, had my Embossing powder and black ink...the plan was to use black ink with clear EP, guess what color I had?? WHITE!! Yep...white on white! SO I had to think again...and I decided to sponge over it in a matching color with my dp! SO a mistake to something I LOVE and will use again!! I used the technique on both the Boy and Girl card.

Also The flag parts on both are cut out and rubbed against my desk to curl and popped it on my cards, they pop out!

Ingredients are basically the same on both except colors, both use BasicGrey dp and PTI cardstock, white satin PTI ribbon and Basicgrey buttons.

Hope you like them!!!
