Growing in Unity Day 3!

(whoops! Hit the enter button again with just the title, so sorry if you got that through google reader, lol!)

Hiya again all and welcome to day 3 of my week of Growing in Unity! I'm still in a loving mood even though Valentine's Day is over, so thought I'd make another card with a theme of LOVE on it! LOL! Here it is:



This set, Butterfly Beauty was the first set I purchased from Unity Stamps. I believe it's one set of my Unity ones that has seen the most love! I just love butterflies and with this set, you can either coloring them and just stamp like I have done this one, sort of a monotone card. I scored on the sage shadow cardstock and used the backside of the scoring, then sponged with some sage shadow all over it to get the lines to pop out more. Kinda hard to see in this photo though. But it did make the lines show up more. I think it sorta looks like tile! Then just added a bit of bling here and there and the sentiment is from the kit of the month again put into SU!'s hodgepodge hardware piece. This was another quick card for me!

That's all for today! I had hoped to get a Unity Addict Challenge card done, but dont know if that will happen before the day is over or not, lol! I have really struggled with it for some reason, lol. Hope you are having a wonderfully creative week and thanks sooo much for stopping in and for the wonderful comments!

AND because I just love getting comments, today's comments will be entered into a drawing to win an extra Dream Tree stamp that I have! I ordered the kit that it came in, then won one and so passing that on to one lucky person! Just comment for the Dream Tree stamp on THIS post today, and I will announce the winner of it Friday afternoon!

This is gorgeous! I love the color combo, the butterfly is gorgeous and I love all of the embellishments, especially the hardware. Super job.

How generous of you! I have been wanting the dream tree forever (and now I can't find it sold separately) so fingers and toes are crossed. Thanks so much for the chance to win it!!

You have a great eye for color combinations. I would never have thought to score the way you have here - it gives the card a much richer feel. TFS!

I've just recently found your blog and love your work so much that I've bookmared it to my desktop. I was sad when you were without your computer for a while as I look forward to seeing your beautiful creations on a regular basis. Glad to see you're up and running again.
