Hello Rose {Growing In Unity}

Hi!
I am so excited to be featured this week 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 be sure to comment on each of my Growing In Unity posts this week because Unity Stamp Company is allowing me to give away a stamp set!

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!


Since today is the first day - I thought it would only be polite to start off with a little hello:


I created the image panel by stamping the rose from "Born An Original" {Authentique Itty Bitty} in watermark ink and embossing it with clear embossing powder.

I went over the embossed image with chalk inks to create the gradient effect.


I finished off the card by adding some letter stickers in a coordinating color - I love the clean and simple look of this card when it all comes together.


Thanks for stopping by today - and don't forget to leave a comment so you can win some stampy goodness!

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