Through My Lens {Growing In Unity}

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


Welcome to my second 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!


I created this card for my awesome sister-in-law, who also happens to be an awesome photographer. When I saw this stamp set, I immediately knew it was the perfect set to use to create a card for her.


Usually my style seems to be a little more whimsical and embellished, but I do love the look of a great clean and simple card.
And of course clean and simple always looks great when you're working with great stamps!

I agree...sometimes clean and simple does the trick. Especially with a great, detailed stamp like that one and that great aqua color. She'll love it. That would be a great business card for a photographer!

Your card is so simple and clean, and the turquoise ink is such a great pop of color. Well done! Can't wait to see what you have in store for the rest of the week.
