{Unity} Friends With Flair - Sep 27th

I know I say this every time I link up to Friends With Flair but it really has been too long, four months to be exact! When my friend Lindsey linked up this morning, it reminded me that I have plenty of Unity to share. It's the perfect time of year to share this card, which was actually a publication rejection in a colour challenge. These leaves from Autumn Grunge are incredible, aren't they? I love how they stamp and can imagine them in so many different colours and patterns! The sentiment is from Ol' Bag of Fun on a die cut flag by Paper Smooches. I love nestling pearls in the centres of sequins. I also coloured the pearls green with a Copic marker to coordinate with the green in the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

My card uses the Enchanted Elves stamp set. I modified both the elf girl and reindeer by cutting away some of the polymer around them so that I could bend them. They are stamped adjoined, then water-coloured and fussy cut. The patterned papers are from Glitz's Finnley paper pad and the bow is tied with May Arts black burlap string.

Also, Cath over at Moxie Fab World is featuring Paper Smooches stamps today. She's given them the Moxie Fab "Stamp" of Approval! Please be sure to stop by to say hello. Your comment could win you five stamp sets!
