Unity FWF!

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to a Unity Blog Hop for FWF!

The card I am sharing today is done with some older Unity stamps that I have in my collection.
In fact I think they are some of the first ones that I purchased!

The background stamp that I used is called Everlasting Romance found here, I stamped it with versamark. And the main image is called Lovely Lilacs found here. (the links are to the Unity website)
I stamped the main image with memento rich cocoa and embossed with clear embossing powder.
 The butterfly is colored in with copics and atyouspica pens. I stamped and colored in 3 butterflies so that I could layer them for dimension. The lilacs and the sponging is done with ranger distress inks.

 And then I used the versamark for the large background stamp. The paper Dollie ribbon is from Basic Gray. Oh and the image at the top and bottom of the Scalloped large oval nestabilities is a Unity stamp as well,but I don't remember it's name. I added 2 glass brads from basic gray at the top and bottom.
 The card stock in from GinaK, and this is the faux leather tan pure luxury. I hope that you can see the texture in the picture. I did use a distressing tool to distress the edges of the ivory with the main image.
I wanted everything to have an aged and romantic appearance.
Okay this last image I added a bow to it because I can't decided if I need a bow or not! What do you think? :) I removed it again after the picture so it could go either way. Maybe I will add a sentiment there instead. It is just that it is almost 3 am and I can't make any decisions right now! LOL

I hope that you like it!
I noticed that I lost a follower today. :(  I hope that I didn't offend anyone by anything that I have written or talked about on my blog!

Thank you for stopping by. Can't wait to see what everyone else has today on their blogs! So much talent in Unity land!!
Have a great weekend!
Blessings and Hugs!
