Fabulous Friday Fun with one of my favorite color combos!

Hola, Unity Peeps!! Jimmi has been in charge of our Friday Fun Challenges for the month of January and this week, she just happened to choose one of my favorite all-time color schemes... 

January 28th – Sunny Days Challenge.  I am sure we are all tired of this COLD weather, I know I am, so lets make a card using the following colors that remind me of Summer: TurquoiseYellowTan (you can add other neutrals, black, white, brown, etc.)

And here is my card...


The "tan" part of the card is actually a bronze metal sheet from Spellbinders. Dh bought me some fun spellbinders supplies for Christmas and these metal sheets were part of them...I love the effect that it has on the card and it was so easy to emboss and cut!

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Melody Ross She Sprouted Wings
*Unity Stamp Co. Melody Ross She Did it Anyway
*Melody Ross paper collection
*Spellbinders metal sheets
*Nestabilities labels die
*Cuttlebug embossing plate
*Martha Stewart border punch
*lace trim
*corner rounder

And did you see that ca-ute sneak peek for the February Kit of the month?? Love those cups!!!

Be sure to go check out what the rest of the girls have made with this kit:


And go check out the Unity blog for the entire list of FWF participants for today!
