Growing in Unity Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Growing in Unity Blog Hop.  If you came from Laura Mooney's blog, you are heading in the right direction.  If you just happened upon my blog today, I'd recommend starting at the Unity blog and comment along the way for your best chance to win a prize!

I used two kits to create a birthday card today.  They are Blow Your Mind and Beautiful Elements.  Here's my card:


I love that huge flower!  The background is done with TH distress inks in Salty Ocean, Broken China and Worn Lipstick.  I then stamped the "mesh" with Dare 2B Artzy Chocolate Chip ink.  The flower is colored with Copic markers, Y00, Y13, Y15, Y18, Y19 and Y28.  I finished the card off with a Happy Birthday Sentiment from Elizabeth Craft Designs, some lace and Nuvo drops.


Your next stop on the hop is Aimee Phillips's blog.  Be sure to leave some bloggy love along the way for your best chance to win!  And thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,

Karen
