Hey Beautiful!... Beautiful people, beautiful friends... beautiful life...  and beautiful Friday!

Sorry for my inactive behavior lately...  I am trying to rest better during the weekdays since I usually work during all day more than the regular 8-hour period, and then I try to exercise, be with my DH, and get some work done at night so the weekends are better... but then when do I get to scrap a little? 
So for the last weeks, I've been away from scrapbooking to be able to go to sleep a little earlier.  This probably is going to last just a few weeks... LOL.

I missed last Friday's Friends with Flair from Unity... and I literally missed it.  I decided to skip exercise last night to be able to make this card to participate today.


I used the frame and sentiment stamps as main elements in the card over a craft embossed base.  This base was also distressed in the edges and pinky inked.  I also used fiber to simulate a flower... and a button covered with glitter.


I confess the button was brownish and matched perfectly with the card but then a little voice ordered me to put some glitter on it.

Here's a flashed photo of the card for a different view.



I think after all my card came out very very very very beautiful... don't you think?  I hope your Friday is very very very beautiful too!!!!!
Don't forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win goodies from our friends in Unity Stamp Co.
