Life Is Beautiful {Growing In Unity}

***Looking for my Market Street Stamps challenge post? Look HERE***

***Looking for my GIVEAWAY? Look HERE***

Welcome to my third day as the Growing In Unity gal!

Stay tuned each day this week as I show you something I've created using stamps from Unity Stamp Company...and we'll have a big celebration at the end of the week as we have a blog hop with Unity Stamp Company and Authentique Paper coming up on Saturday, October 8th.
You won't want to miss it!

If you are new here or aren't already a follower: I'd love to have you follow my blog!
If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you!

For this project I wanted to challenge myself to use my stamps with only white cardstock and two colors of ink (Pixie Dust and Perfect Plumeria).
No manufactured patterned paper or other color allowed.

I love how it came out!

I randomly stamped the post card stamp from the "Be Mine (With Love)" set in Pixie Dust to create my own patterned paper. Then I took the frame (from the same set) and stamped it in Perfect Plumeria.

I topped it off by stamping the "Beautiful" stamp (a Melody Ross Itty Bitty) using both colors of ink, cutting out the frame and the bird, and adding a few embellishments.

Leave a comment telling me what you think about today's project so you can be in the running to win a free kit from Unity Stamp Company!
{The randomly picked winner will have a choice of one kit from the following list: Sending My Love, Bitty Backgrounds, Little Me, Bella Fiori, Homegrown , Hugs & Kittens, Handmade Holiday, Bella Trees, Imagine It - to be sent to a domestic address only, please.}

And, of course, I'd love it if you sign up to be a follower!
