Happy "1st" Anniversary Unity!

Isn't it just a beautiful day...the sun is shining and we're celebrating Unity Stamp Co's ONE year anniversary! Let's hear a "Hip Hop Hooray"! I discovered Unity Stamp Co in the SCS forum and made my first purchase in February and already have met so many wonderful and very talented ladies!

Now, don't miss out on all of the Unity specials and sales and well...just go take a look here...you've gotta see it all to believe it!

On to my card...I made this simple card for Jeanne's challenge to make a Unity card or project that has at least one edge that is either scalloped, torn, or cut in some other pattern. So, I decided to use the August '08 KOTM, "remember HAPPINESS" for my card...did I tell you that I LUV this set?!! I stamped the butterflies on the bottom edge and then cut those edges out. I embossed the flower in silver for my background paper, and used Stampin' Up's Metallic Art Pencils to color in the raised butterfly. The metallic pencils look much better IRL...they don't show up too much in the photo. I wasn't able to get this card posted to the forum in time, but that's okay...there'll be plenty more challenges!

From Unity Projects


I think this is appropriate to say that we have all made "friends for life" (hence the sentiment on the card) all because of the wonderful folks who are associated with Unity Stamp Co!

THANKS Unity for the all fun and such wonderful stamps! And, thanks everyone for stopping by!
