It's a Unity Par-tay!

Pin It
Unity is turning ONE!
And...you can get some FABULOUS Unity at Limelight Papercrafts!

Be sure to check out the Unity Challenges this week!

Here are 2 I did yesterday for the color challenge:

I started by stamping the Royal Day background in versamark onto the Kraft card base.

The Sweet Zzzz's is stamped in black onto So Saffron. I paper pieced the bird with Baja Breeze. ...and colored in the flowers with a white gel pen.
I topped it with a mini white brad and added a yellow ribbon border at the bottom of the bird cage.

I used a jumbo eyelet to thread the baja breeze ribbon through...
Used white thread to 'sew' the swirl...
...and finished off the sentiment (from Simply Said) with three Silver Rhinestones.

I *finally* inked up my Itsy Bitsy Giggles....LOVE it!
The sentiment is from a past Unity KOM (kit of the month....Aug maybe?).

I embellised with some Basic Grey Buttons and a Prima (from the Essentials 4 Dude pack).
