End of September Friends with Flair!

How can it possibly be the last day of September? Personally, I have no idea. But it is, and it's also Friday, so it's time for Unity Friends with Flair.




As soon as I saw this Itty Bitty stamp, I knew I, um, needed it. There are so many things you could do with this image, but for this card, I kept it simple. Inked and embossed the image in red, cut it out, and popped it up on red and then black. This card is definitely clean and simple (CAS) so I'm throwing it into the latest challenge at Crafty Creations, which is exactly that: clean and simple creations. And how can I resist entering the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge?
Any plans for World Card Making Day tomorrow? I'm hoping!


Supplies: white, black & Stampin' Up real red cardstock, Unity silhouette song bird stamp, Colorbox cranberry ink, Ranger rich red embossing powder, pop dot tape Pin It Now!
