Growing in Unity Day 5

Hello there,

Happy Friday.

Hope you have some wonderful plans for the weekend.  

I think there is going to be some spring rain for us this weekend.  So maybe no outdoor plans for me.

I first want to thank everyone for the wonderful 
and inspiring comments you have left.  
You are all so very kind.

And a  I want to send big thank you to Unity Stamps
for continuing the Growing in Unity program,

Once again
My image today comes from
 the She found Joy kit


I guess I needed some good spring images since we had a very wet winter.

This card is pretty straight forward.

I  stamped and colored this image using alcohol markers.
Then cut out the image using an oval die.

The border I used the scrap cut out of the card from yesterday and glued it to the floral paper.
(I'm being a good girl and using those scraps)

I then made a cutout using the same oval die so that I could seat the image into the background layer.
I wanted to be sure to cut the border at the same time so that everything lined up.  

The oval die set I have had the embossed oval too.  
I usually use it on the inside but this time I used it on the outside to add a large frame.

And added this beautiful sentiment embossed in gold on vellum.

I added a little sparkle to each of the flowers using the glitter markers.

That is pretty much it.    

Thank you for spending the week with me.

I hope you enjoyed all of my projects and found some inspiration.

Don't forget to drop in and see Samantha's last project for the week

I will keep the comments open until Sunday 
and will pick a two lucky winners Monday.

They will be posted by Tuesday night.

Thank you everyone!!!
