Unity Be Inspired Challenge 01

I saw that Unity has come up with a brand new challenge on the second Thursday of every month and seeing as I do own some of their stamps, which I like very much but sadly neglect way too much, I thought this might be a good way to ensure that I do use them.

They have a Sketch for a card/layout and a colour inspiration and I decided to use the colour combination and the sketch for my card today:

Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Festive Berries & Peacock Feathers distress inks
Stamps: Unity (Itty Bitty: She & He; Seot 2011 KOM; Jan 2011 KOM; "Lollipop Tree You & Me")
Other: white embossing powder; Glossy Accents; pop dots; corner chomper; PTI cloud die

I used the PTI cloud die and then stamped the clouds with a set of arrows/chevrons that are in the Itty Bitty: She & He stamp set.  I then found a graph like stamp in the September 2011 Kit of the Month and used that to stamp the red banner and then again to emboss in white on the mat behind the hearts.  I also decided to trim an extra heart and pop it up with some dimensional tape, adding some glossy accents over it.

I like how it turned out.

I hope that you are all having a fabulous Saturday, ours is almost over!
