Happy Friends with Flair!!

Happy, HAPPY Friday! Thanks for joining me in FWF. To see the full list of participants, please start at Unity. Another welcome to anyone visiting from NaBloPoMo! I have joined in the challenge of blogging every day for a month. Please stop by and visit me any day during the month of November; I'll have a new post up every day!! I'd love to hear your comments:)

On to the card...I have been in love with this image since I first saw it used. Something about the symmetrical crossword squares on the bird speak to me. I used my copic marker to color in the bird to match the dp. I was just in the mood for PINK!

Do you save your scraps of ribbon? I'm learning to because even the smallest scrap can be worked into a bow or knot to add extra color. I've also seen some cool cards using the negative image of a cut-out shape that is backed with ribbon. Today I threaded my ribbon scrap in to add some pizazz to the light pink organza.

I hope you have a fantastic Friday! Here's to the weekend!!
