Growing In Unity~Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of Growing In Unity! My card today is made with Basic Grey Pyrus DP. I just love this particular pattern, it reminds me of vintage wallpaper and the gold couch we had growing up that was covered in plastic and we were never allowed to sit on! Oh, the good 'ol days! Back then, that couch was the ugliest thing ever, and we used to tease my mom about it all the time, but it's funny that now I think it was really cool!
Anyway, very simple card here starting with PTI kraft cardstock, a layer of BG Pyrus and then some very pretty trims that I picked up in Orlando at the Scrappy Boutique. The lighter brown crocheted trim is by Prima, the flowers are by BoBunny and the darker brown is (I think) May Arts. Finished off with a Maya Road stick pin and some coordinating Recollections pearls. The sentiment is from my Unity August 2010 Kit of the Month, {all you need}. Love this one! So much fun :)

Thanks for stopping by today to see me for my second day of Growing In Unity! Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a prize at the end of the week! (and of course because they make my day!)

We are off to Pre-School orientation later this morning, so I'm sure I will be an emotional wreck today ;)

Enjoy YOUR day!

Hi NoraAnne!

You say very simple card, but it's a grogeous one!! I love all the fabrics on it, that's so cool! And that paper is very lovely and vintage, love it! And your story with it is very funny, is the couch still there with your mom? I'm curious. I love this card and it definitely is funky!

Hugs,
Wendy

Beautiful card! We had an ugly gold couch, too! It was soft, though, and it was the best place to lie down when you weren't feeling well. Enjoy your day!
