Unity Friends with Flair!


Good morning! Jumping in to the game a bit later than usual, but wanted to join in with Unity Stamps Friends with Flair! I was actually waiting a bit, because I submitted this card for Paper Crafts Stamping Issue Publication Call...now that I know it wasn't selected, I can share it here! :-)
I used one of the Ippity stamps that I got recently - isn't it darling? 
I stamped it, colored with Copics, then applied some Glossy Accents and Martha Stewart coarse glitter over the hearts.
The sentiment was stamped twice to give it a shadow effect. 
All the pattern papers are from Echo Park's Victoria's Garden 6x6 paper pad. I distressed them with my Tim Holtz distress tool, and some Versamark ink. The white cardstock also is sponged over with a bit of Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen.
Here is a closer look that shows how the hearts shine with their glitter! 
Rounded the corners on the first layer, then wrapped a bit of Baker's Twine from the Twinery around and added a Papertrey Ink button. 
The final touch was a bit of Tim Holtz sheer ruffled trim that I trimmed in half, and glued behind the second layer. Love that soft ruffle!!! 
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure and check out the Unity blog for all the new releases, and to join in on Friends with Flair!

I am also submitting this to this weeks Chick Challenge #17 based on this sketch:
