FWF......Friday Flair Unity Style

Above is my card for this weeks Friends with Flair post. The sentiment is from Unity KOTM,
The paper is some new My Mind's Eye I picked up at Michaels the other day. I matched some cardstock to the colors in the paper and used the layout from one put out by Verve recently.
Below, you can see where I made my own faux brads.
I am personally not a fan of brads.....but I love these. They are simply paper punched circles from one of my hand punches.
I adhere them to my card and then coat them in Crystal Effects!
Once dry, they look like shiny buttons and they are much less expensive than brads!!
