Growing In Unity-Day 1

Happy H{ippity} Hop Monday! So much going on, it's Labor Day and we are driving home from Florida. The trip started out Sunday morning so as you read this I am not sure where I will be! Since we stayed in a nice 2-bedroom condo in Orlando, I had some room to spread out one night and make a card to share with you today for my first day of "Growing In Unity".
What does that mean?! It means that I will be sharing a card or project every day this week using Unity/ippity stamps. Leave a comment on my blog each day for a chance to win a prize at the end of the week! Simple? right!
W hile in Orlando, I had the opportunity to sneak away for 2 hours one afternoon as my son was napping and visit the Scrappy Boutique. If you are in the Orlando area and get a chance to go there, you will NOT be disappointed! So many new CHA releases, my head was spinning! I really could have gone CRAZY, but since we were on a family Disney vacation, I had to contain myself! I did pick up some fun stuff though and I'm sure you will see some of it this week as I share my projects!
The card I have for you today is made with {ippity's} Summer Release set "You Deserve" (in stock and ready to ship over on my {ippity} sales blog!)
I started with a base of PTI kraft cardstock (first time using their cardstock and it's SUPER thick, great quality!) The next layer is from the 6x6 Basic Grey Pyrus paper pad that I picked up at the aforementioned Scrappy Boutique (aka scrappy Heaven!). I then took another sheet from the BG paper pad and stamped the flowers from "You Deserve" in Ranger Distress ink to make my own patterned paper. I stamped the houndstooth scalloped corners from the same set onto this paper and cut them out and popped them up for some dimension. I stamped the sentiment with Pumpkin dew drop chalk ink and backed it with the same DP and popped this up as well, underlining it with some pearls and there you have it! A quick and easy card that can be used for many different occasions!
Make sure to stop back each day this week for my Unity project as well as some tears as I send my baby off to pre-school *sob*! Where did the last four years go?!?!
Have a great week!
xx, nora anne

Hello NoraAnne,

Too bad your holiday is over, but sounds like you had a wonderful time! Wow! And would I like to go there and visit that shop!! We don;t have anything like that here in the Netherlands!! Amazing, very curious what you'll be making with it!
I totally love this card, like it how you kept the colors neutral, this makes it suitable for lots of purposes and it's very pretty!!

Hugs,
Wendy
