Crafting and FWF

Happy Friday!
I was making some ornaments using the Unity - October Store Kit and great two sided paper  .

I used the Christmas ornament  to give shape.  I sandwiched the ornament between Basic Grey.  I couldn't get the angle right but this is a shaker ornament.

I was trying to use the digital paper from GinaK.  I got them printed at  Office Depot.  I really like that because you can tell them what weight you want.

This is my first holiday card. I purchased this stamp from Sugar Nellie.  I just love the manga images.  I think it was a sketch challenge on Sugar Nellie.  I used some no traditional colors.

Welcome to Unity's FWF.  I decided to make this card for the Ladies, Ink blog group.  The challenge was to make a one layer, one colour of ink and one embellishment (no multiples! That means if you're using a brad - JUST ONE!!!).  These cards are always challenging to me.
