My winning card and another

It's time for another Unity's Friends with Flair. Make sure you check out Unity's blog for the list of participants and find the hidden flair to win some yummy Unity stamps.

I have two cards to show you. The first one was the card I submitted for Week 3's Bro Challenge to use plaid and polka dots together. And guess what? I won Runner Up! I still can't believe it. I was cleaning my stash and found these two scraps of dp perfect for the challenge. I don't know what brand they are. I used paper piecing and Copic coloring on these adorable Shine On! lamps. A little bit of distressing, stitches, punches and button finished the card. The card base is Ruby Red.

The next card is my other attempt to what I call clean & shabby style. Not quite the typical shabby chic as I don't know how to do collages. I like everything to be straight. LOL! I used Birdie Inspiration and Stylin' Stars. Isn't that ribbon gorgeous? That's a local find and it's so silky soft. The card base is Pink Passion. The dps are La Creme by DCWV and K&Co.

Both cards use machine stitching for the Crazy 4 Challenges this week.

  31. Absolutely stunning. Both your cards are just that. Congratulations on the Week 3's Bro Challenge . No surprise there though. You always make a winner of a card. Love it. And love the lamp images and how you've paper pieced them.
    About your Clean and shabby card. I say shabbyliciousness!! The lace is gorgeous peeking out from the punched edge love the black with the other colors. Yes the ribbon is beautiful. And the birdie.. well, is so precious.
