Unity Stamps and Ippity Challenge
I am enjoying being able to take pictures of my cards outside again. Of course, then you have to watch for shadows, bright glowing orbs (it is called the sun). I took 3 or 4 pictures of this card and this is the best one I got - but I found it quite interesting how I ended up with the glow around the little butterfly. How fun is that.
A very simple card made with some of my new stamps from Unity. I am having lots of fun with all those new stamps. The challenge on the Unity site (ippity challenge) - is to use flowers. Luckily I had bought one flower stamp so I was able to participate in the challenge.
My friend Ivanka's blog led me to another challenge site - The Pink Elephant - where the challenge is to use a butterfly.
I stamped the image and sentiment in VersaMark and embossed with white. I inked the edge of the kraft paper with white ink. I used my Spellbinders to cut all the layers. The pin dot paper is a scrap laying on my table from Authentique. I thought it added just enough interest to the card. The image and sentiment were pop dotted. I added the butterfly this morning - as I was trying to fall asleep last night - the thought popped into my head that I should add a butterfly to the card. Luckily there was a scrap of the brighter pink on my table leftover from yesterday's card. I used a Martha Stewart punch.
Thanks for stopping by and yes - it is Friday and we can start to get ready to enjoy the week end.
