Friends with Flair Friday!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another FWF! This week I have 2 cards to share with you. The first is a CAS card I made for the Castastic challenge this week, which was to use buttons. Super simple and quick, I used a strip of American Crafts patterned paper, some swiss dot embossed white cardstock, a bit of ribbon and a button. The sentiment is from the "Now and Always" {ippity} set. I added a bit of shading with some sponged distress inks. 5 minutes and it's done!



Next is a card based on this week's sketch (#58) at Unscripted sketches. I just loved this sketch and had a blast making this card. Paper is from October Afternoon, the frame is a Technique Tuesday tile that I covered with distress embossing powder. (2 coats) then sponged a bit of vintage photo here and there. I used 5 separate {ippity} kits on this card, can you tell which ones?


Thanks for stopping by, I'm off on my road trip to Buffalo as soon as I get out of work - 7 hour drive, but so worth it! Have fun in your search for the secret blinkie...it's hidden somewhere on one of the blogs listed at the Unity Blog!

Both your cards are gorgeous. I love the first for the CAS design, but you've made some wonderful choices of paper that make it even better. And the frame on the second is so very pretty.
