Growing In Unity :: Day 2 - Congratulations Card


Welcome to the 2nd day of my week as the Growing In Unity gal!

I am so thankful for each of you that have stopped by so far to check out and comment on my first project using Unity Stamp Company stamps. Be sure to comment on all five of my Growing In Unity posts this week if you want a chance to win some free stamps!

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!
If you are on Facebook, please "like" Ink Blots by TRD.


Today I have a very simple card to share with you. It is nothing more than white cardstock, black ink, and ribbon (and Unity stamps, of course!)...but I love how it turned out:
I used the beautiful floral image from Gladness Touch Your Life (by Joslyn Nielson) and the "congratulations" from the Blossoming Thoughts & Wishes sentiment kit (by Lisa Arana). I ended up stamping the floral image 5 times (on a variety of angles). I had considered coloring in the flowers, but I love the look of this in black and white (with a little pop of color).


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