Growing in Unity Wednesday

Hi, everyone! I am taking on a different focus on my blog this week! I was invited to be a part of the Growing in Unity feature for Unity Stamp Company's blog this week, so I am up today, and for the rest of the week, with Unity Stamp projects. What does that mean for you? I will be sharing Unity Stamp projects all week, and I will be drawing one lucky winner from all of the comments on my Growing In Unity Posts this week to choose 2 Itty Bitty's of their choice.

The card that I am sharing today is made with one of my favorite Unity Stamp sets, "Music Of My Heart" :

Layered and colorful on the outside:



Clean and simple on the inside:

As I was browsing the web looking for inspiration to give me a jumpstart, I took a peek at the Unity Stamp Co Challenge for this month:


When I saw the color challenge, I immediately thought of Crate Paper's Acorn Avenue collection, so I took that and  ran with it. I stamped the bird on manila cardstock, fussy cut it, and misted it with peach Color Shine, then stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card. 

Please remember to leave a comment on every Growing In Unity post this week ( I plan to post every day, today through Saturday), to put your name in the prize drawing for 2 Itty Bitty's!

    1. Thanks Ann! No, the doily was simply a doily from Wilton's, and the bird was a Unity stamp that I hand cut.
