Throwing Down for FWF

Hey everyone!! That was a pretty awesome Hip Hop, wasn't it? And did you see the new Echo Park stamps?? If you've got little boys, they are a must! I'm still considering them, even though my boys are grown, because I've still got a lot of scrapping to do from their earlier years and I think those stamps would be perfect.

Anyway, it's Friday and that means Friends With Flair! To see who's participating this week, check out the Unity Blog. Somebody has a blinkie that could win you 25 random Unity stamps just for leaving a comment.

My card this morning uses Hip Hop Sketch Challenge #33, posted by Jimmi yesterday and the colours from Color Throwdown #118. I substituted some Prismatics cardstock in the closest red I could find, since I don't own any cherry cobbler. I think it works. Then I pulled out a set I won off Hip Hop several weeks ago...Brave Girl Boots, which I just adore! I think the sentiment just says pretty much everything that Melody Ross tries to get across in all that she does.
Other challenges this card is for:
Anything Goes: Emboss it - I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder
Paper Pretties: embossing - the stamp is also heat embossed
Cute Card Thursday: anything goes
EtsyInspired: Putu Princess Escapes - the colours in this shirt

Have an awesome day - and I hope to see you all this evening on the VSN forum at Splitcoaststampers starting at 6pm. We start off with my challenge...wonder what it could be...
