~I have a Play Date with All Things Unity~

Okay, so yes, I wasn't sure what to put as my title on this post...do you like it? It represents two challenge blogs that I made a card for, which are

Before I give all the details, here is my card creation:
From Unity and {ippity} Projects
Stamps: Unity March 2010 KOM: Rockin' It Unity Style
C/S: SU Purely Pomegranate, Sahara Sand, Pure Mustard; MME Wild Asparagus, Neenah Solar White
Ink: SU Purely Pomegranate, More Mustard; Memento Noir, Copics E00, E01, E31, Y17, R89
Accessories: Purely Pomegrantate Satin Ribbon, sponging technique, paper piecing technique, MS punch

All Things Unity: I had wanted to participate in their challenges, 'cause you know that I love Unity stuff and that's what they are all about "Unity Stamp Co" sets...so finally I'm doing it! The challenge HERE is called What's your Flavor? Well, I'm not really sure if I have a specific flavor of creating at this point, but I sure know that I love bows...hence the bow in my card.  If you want to get your submission in at the last minute...hurry, tonight is the cut off!

Play Date Cafe: I love their challenges and have been absent for a while, so yay, here I am! The Challenge this week is to use some dark and rich colors in the picture below.  I thought my colors from Stampin' Up of Purely Pomegranate, More Mustard, and Sahara Sand fit perfectly for them. If you want to join in on the fun, get your challenge creation in HERE by Tuesday, 9/7 before midnight!

I appreciate that you came by today...have a fabulous Labor Day weekend! Enjoy!

What a beautiful umbrella card. I wish I could use an umbrella more often, we don't have enough rain, here. I adore the rain.
