Friends with Flair and CAS-ual Fridays!

A double Friday link-up! As always, it's Unity Friends with Flair time. Friday is also the day CAS-ual Fridays posts their newest challenge... and this week it's featuring our feathered friends.




I love the elegance of this stamp. I also love this Basic Grey patterned paper that I found on sale (!) at Michaels (!) a while ago. Of course I only bought one sheet, which I now regret. Memento rhubarb stalk ink matched the darkest colour perfectly, totally justifying its recent purchase. :P
Happy weekend and Happy Mother's Day if it applies!





Supplies: white cardstock, Basic Grey euphoria ferver patterned paper, Unity/Webster's Pages Love stamp, Memento rhubarb stalk ink, Spellbinders oval die, pop-dot tape  Pin It Now!
