H{ippity} Hop Monday~Sketch Challenge

FINALLY, I got my act together to do one of the Unity Challenges on SCS. The card I made is for Hip Hop Sketch Challenge #21 {HHSC21}. The stamp set I used is What A Hoot, by Samantha Walker for Unity. I won this set during a Hip Hop a few Thursday's ago, how cool is that?! Another reason to ((heart)) Unity!
The DP is from K&Co and I used a scalloped border punch by EK Success. The owl is stamped with embossing ink and embossed with Ranger Distress embossing powder~love this stuff! Finished off with my hand-dyed wrinkly ribbon!


I also have another tag to share today (I'm obsessed!) This tag was crinkled up in a ball (great way to get your frustrations out-lol!), distressed with Ranger Tea Dye distress ink and then stamped with the Music of My Heart background stamp from {ippity}. Love this stamp!!!
I punched two stars, ran them through my Xyron and then covered them with some silver Martha Stewart glitter. Paired it up with two little pieces of trim and Voila~cute little tag!
I will actually be doing a tag workshop next month at Paper Wings in Brant Beach and this happens to be one of them!

Well, that's all for now! Next stop on the hop is The Year For Change or you can go back to the {ippity} blog for a full list of participants.
Have a great week! 5 more days til Disney!!!!
