It's Your Day with Unity

It's not my birthday, but I've made this card to give to myself! We've gone 2 consecutive days without a major snow storm!
Its a miracle!

But I Digress...

Its Friday, So that means Friends with Flair over at the Unity Blog! I have so many new unity stamps from Christmas I haven't busted out yet - So here's one. The Birthday Jubilee set. It has some great birthday sentiments, I choose this one with the intentions of getting some coloring in, I just can't get on the coloring bandwagon. I really want to, but everytime I go to - It doesn't look right... I'll keep trying :)
Anyway.. I followed the Sketch theme from the monthly
unity challenge ---->
I really love the Unity Ornate Artisan Stackers stamp set w/ matching die because I can stamp & cut out. In this case, I stamped and embossed some heat and bond to apply glitter! That simply wasn't enough glitter so I filled the stamp in with some Stickles and I still felt the need... The need for Bling (ha-ha) so I added some Rhinestones.

Happy Friday everyone & Have a great Weekend!

  3. This is a really sweet card!! I love the bold purple & the sentiment cut. A wonderful take on the sketch!

  4. How sweet! I love the purple and the balloon sentiment. Gorgeous!

  5. Cute card following the sketch. Love how you've galmmed-up that sentiment from the birthday kit.

  6. Very pretty card! LOL about giving it to yourself.

  7. I love it! Two days without a has been a rough winter for lots of folks...

  8. Gorgeous design all in purple. I like the way the birthday stamp and frame turned out. I see the sparkle in there.
