Growing In Unity - Day 1: Choose Joy

I am excited to be back participating in another week of Growing In Unity. I took a look back at my blog and realized that this will be my 7th year participating in Growing In Unity - wow!

Before I go on - please make sure you are following me on Facebook and on Instagram. I'd love to keep in touch with you there.

Okay...on to my card for today:
I created a watercolor background (who doesn't love stripes and polka dots?!) and then added the Choose Joy With A Heart stamp to finish it off. I filled in some of the blank space of the stamped image and added a few tiny dots with a white Sharpie to add a little interest and help the sentiment pop.

Be sure to leave a comment to be entered to win 25 random stamps from Unity Stamp Company!
(I'll choose TWO winners when the week is over.)

Thanks for stopping by today!
Supplies:
Watercolor Cardstock: Canson (Watercolor XL 140# Cold Press);
Cardstock: Discount Cardstock (Black 130#);
Stamps: Unity Stamp Company (Choose Joy With A Heart);
Ink: Ranger (Archival - Jet Black);
Other: Watercolor Paints (Master's Touch Watercolor Paint Set - 24 Colors); Sharpie (White Paint Pen);
Tools: Fiskars (Trimmer); Scor-Pal (Scoring Board);
