GIU #3--Congrats!

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you are all well!

Thank you for joining me this week as
Unity's Growing In Unity gal!

So exciting!
So, for today, I went with a design 
for a card that I had seen on Pinterest.
of course, after I had seen, and was so inspired from it, 
I could not find it again! 

grrr! Frustrating!


Life goes on!
This card is for a friend who asked me to create a card for 
her friend's wedding.
You know the case, for a friend of a friend of mine? :)
I used an awesome stamp that I bought quite a while ago.
that love bug stamp, found here.
I inked the base of the card with my Inker and Distress Ink.
I wanted to give it a soft look, like sky.
The love bug was stamped with Ranger Archival Ink, and 
inked with a mixture of blues and grey Distress markers.
The heart shaped balloons are cut from a 
Mickey Mouse cut n' emboss folder, in 
my loveable Cuttlebug.

The 'strings' are pen markks from my Sharpie pen.
The papers used for the balloons are from the
Maggie Holmes Collections..pretty much my scraps! :)
Congratulations is from Paper Smooches.

Overall, I like it!

Now you may notice that this card is NOT the same 
as on the Unity blog. Very true.
That card that I had sent to Unity ran into 
a little mishap! 
To make a long story short, I had to redo the balloons, 
hence the different balloons.

But I like it much better now! :)

So, that is it for me for now.

A demain, mes amies!
