More from the Flying Unicorn March KOM!

I have lots to share with you today, I've been busy these last few days!

First I want to show you this card I made.  It is special for two reasons, the most important of which is that it was for my Mom's 90th birthday!!  And not so important, but really, I seldom make cards so this is a milestone, LOL!!

The March kit included some wonderful Kanban papers that had this divine image on it, what luck for me that it had the Happy Birthday tag also!   I combined the Kanban with a sheet a Bazzill cardstock and BasicGrey Little Black Dress - Foxy Posh.  The large flower is a fabulous bloom from Manor House.  Their flowers are divine!!  The smaller roses are no name from my stash.  The bloom above the tag is from the kit and is a Petaloo Color Me Crazy orchid stained with Lindy's Alpine Rose.

The Kanban and BasicGrey papers in the kit are so elegant that I had this vision of a layout featuring a true beauty, this photo of Elizabeth Taylor fit my vision perfectly!  I mixed BasicGrey Little Black Dress - Vogue and Foxy Posh with Kanban Couture Chic-white and added Bo Bunny Enchanted Noteworthy journal spots as accents for this layout.  The Dusty Attic (DA0542) corners are from my stash and are painted with oyster Luminarte.  The cameo is something I've been hoarding forever and thought it was perfect for this LO, and of course I had to add lots and lots of bling for a Liz LO, ZVA and Recollections.

This layout was also done with the March KOM.  I combined papers from BG Little Black Dress (Black and White) and Inkido Rosebuds & Vintage Love for this.  I also added a sheet of cardstock and the tan diecut (CI) from my stash.  the DA corner, bird and cage are also from my stash.  The large bloom is from the store, Manor House, I am loving their flowers!!  The heart and wine rosebuds are from the Feb KOM.  This was a fun project that I did for a challenge that Alda is hosting at the Flying Unicorn this month, it was quite the challenge, come join us, there's a great RAK up for grabs.

We are having so much fun this month making fun fashions, come join in the fun. This week our challenge is to create a hat so I made this fun little garden hat.  Here in the south its past time to be thinking about the garden so I thought I'd better get myself a hat to wear, LOL!  I used a little hat form for the crown and then cut a large brim that I cut on the edge with a Martha Stewart punch.  I added two ribbons and the flowers, the large one is a Flying Unicorn brand flower, new in the store, I love them!!!

And finally I made this simple little shoe last week during shoe week.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope to see you at the Flying Unicorn some time!
