Friends with Flair Friday

Once again, it is time for Unity's Friends with Flair!  I always enjoy popping around to all the different blogs and seeing everyone's creations.  I am still stuck on these paper flowers and I love using pages from old books.  Here is my creation this week.
 
 
 
The image is embossed with Tim Holtz distressing powder.  I really like the feel it gave the image on the book paper.  You do have to be very careful though using old paper and a heat embosser.  Yes, I almost caught it on fire.
 
 
For those of you that don't know, there is a new card challenge blog out there called Sister Act Card Challenge.  They are posting their challenges every Friday and it is always anything goes!  How fun it that going to be? 
 
As always, thanks for looking and I hope you have a great day!
