...many thanks Michelle!

It's {ippity} Monday and what a fantastic day it is! 
The one sad thing about today is that Michelle Ogdahl is leaving Unity.  Michelle has been instrumental in the successful start of helping to get the {ippity} line off the ground and what a fabulous time we are all having because of {ippity}! 

My card today is for Michelle which simply says "many thanks"! I truly am grateful for all that she's done for us {ippity} chicks and wish her the best in her new endeavor! 
You will be missed Michelle! 
From Unity and {ippity} Projects
Stamps: {ippity} Bitty Pixie Paisley, So this is Love, Dots for Sure
C/S: SU Brilliant Blue, Pale Plum, Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Noir, Copics: V06, V09, V93, B21, B24
Technique: 'stamp kissing'...inked the plant stamp with Pale Plum, inked the Dots for Sure stamp with Memento Noir, then stamped the plant stamp with the Dots for Sure stamp, and then stamped the plant stamp onto the c/s to get that double stamped look.

Aren't those ribbons yummy?...the lavender/blue irridescent ribbon and blue twill ribbon are both from Really Reasonable Ribbons; ZVA Pearls are colored with Copics to match; used a tiny bit of blue twine; and Spica Glitter pens on the flower tips (which you can't see in the pic, but it's a little shiny!).


"MANY THANKS" for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!
Best wishes Michelle!
