**Ribbons and Pearls** New Challenge with Hobbycutz!!

Hi everyone!!  It's time for another challenge at Hobbycutz!  This week its Team 2 and we've got a beautiful theme for you, Ribbons and Pearls!  Hobbycutz Shop is our amazing sponsor this week, and I've chosen to use one of the borders from the Decorative Borders set on this card.  I gave it a light wash of two coats of watered-down paint to give it the right shabby-chic look.


I used a technique I'd never tried before on this card, and I LOVE it!!!

Be Your Own Beautiful

It's Friday and that means it's time for Unity Stamps Fridays With Flair!  I used my November SMAK kit to make this CAS card.  CAS is not my style but I like to branch out now and then.



It's totally not how it started out, but I like it.

A Unicorn Without A Horn

When I was little, I believed that any horse with wings was a unicorn.  It took me a few years to get that the horn was what made it a unicorn, not the wings.  I also had to understand that wings are not mandatory on unicorns.  It was a hardship.

I've been toying around with this card for awhile and today I just went for it and threw it together in minutes.  I'm LOVING how it came out!!
