[7.3.2014] more Unity Thursday

More Unity Thursday

Time for some more THURSDAY fun with the Unity design team.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog.  There’s always fun stuff going on.  We are still loving the Gina & Me stamps plus the Ang & Me paper package.

So much fun, I have two cards to share with you today.


I don’t think I have a stamp set specifically for besties.  So, glad Ang & Gina came up with this idea and the Unity Artistas created the perfect stamps.  I’m using some of the lovely new patterned paper behind the stamped girls and sentiment.  The background stamp is from Unity too.


DDWS17I based this card on my current Wanna Sketch? challenge.  I thought it would be a great way to feature those beautiful papers by Gina K and the lovely butterflies in the stamp set.

I meant to pop up the teal paper to create a separation between the two layers, but ahem, forgot.  Ha.  So after I cursed myself a little, I decided tying some twine will do just fine.

I layered to two butterflies on top of each other, the little guy creates the perfect lifted set of wings.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
We’ll be giving away 2 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs.

Here are all the girls hopping today…  just click on the next pretty girl in line.
