Unity -AMYRS72

I had the greatest idea as soon as I saw Amy's sketch this week but it totally didn't come together like the idea in my head. Anyway, here is the card I made. I used a Unity quote and all CTMH papers. I colored the stamp with CTMH markers first, then huffed and stamped it onto SU Shimmery White cs.

I inked the edges of the quote oval and the mat with a way too full ink pad (I forgot I just re-inked it but was committed after I started)!! Oooops. The ribbon is from my stash from Taylored Expressions and I added wee rhinestones (CTMH) to the flower centers on the quote. I did leave off the sentiment and fill the card up more than the sketch because I have the quote in there as the focal point, there wasn't a need for a sentiment.

All in all I still think it's pretty although it didn't come together quite like I was thinking!

We had a super weekend. The kids just got in from a ride now and I took a bunch of pictures...I will upload them after and post some tomorrow. Now that Kirsten's camp is done we have a pretty uneventful week coming up. We are going to Calaway Park on Thursday with my friend Amy and her 2 sweet girls Kyra and Kaylee, the kids get along great, so I think it'll be a great day!

Other than that I will just be starting to get the 5th wheel ready for our holidays at the end of the month and laundry, there's never a shortage of that around here!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a super week ahead.
