Yep - I'm excited to get to do another week of Growing in Unity - so I've got my dancing shoes on!!! Make sure and leave me comments all week long to be entered to win 2 Unity Itty Bitty stamps of your choice! TOTALLY fun - and the hardest part will be just picking two!!!
I just LOVE this adorable image from the newest Unity KOTM for July, and had to use it! I think I'm going to give it to my friend who just had surgery on her feet about a week and a half ago to get rid of a bunion! She is still off her feet for several more weeks (which is a difficult task with a houseful of little boys to take care of!) - but I'm sure she will be ready to dance as soon as her foot heals all the way - or at least go shoe shopping!
I also used the colors inspiration from this weeks Color Story over at Playdate Cafe:
I used the colors - but was surprised where I ended up on my card! I was thinking a lot more shabby chic and elegant with this color story, and instead, I think this card ended up a little more modern and vintage! Either way is fine - just kind of funny!
All my papers are from one of my first Studio Calico 6x6 paper pads: Heyday. I stamped the image right on my pattern paper.
Next I used a circle punch in two different sizes to cut several circles out of the yellow paper, layered them in a row and glued them together, then stamped my sentiment over the top. Ran a strip of black twill ribbon from Ribbon Carousel over the top of the image, then attached the yellow circle border over the top with foam adhesive, tucking one circle behind the ribbon.
Added a bit of bling - then couldn't resist adding a doily in the top corner. Then...because that looked like it needed a bit of something, I made a bow out of Baker's Twine, added a PTI button, and a yellow stick on pearl.
Finished off by rounding the top right corner of the card.
Thanks for stopping by to visit! Remember to leave comments so you have a chance to win two Unity Itty Bitty's of your choice! I will draw a winner on Saturday - so make sure and check back to see if you were the lucky winner!!! Have a wonderful day!!!
