GROWING IN UNITY DAY THREE

This is a card I made for the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.  I needed an anniversary card for some dear friends who are celebrating their sixtieth anniversary.  I wanted it to be elegant, so I used some beautiful paper by EK Success and then embossed a piece of cardstock with one of Tim Holtz's texture fades.  I used my antique linen distress ink to bring out the design.  I then stamped the clock image from the Roots and Wings store kit again using the antique linen distress ink.  On top of that I stamped the "love has no boundaries" stamp from the Sentiments o Simple set in pumice distress ink.  I backed it with some kraft paper and used a flower by prima for an accent.  The lace is by Fancy Pants.  Really pleased with the results.
This is the card I made for the Hip Hop Sketch.  I used one of my Spellbinders pendants (love those things) to make the "doily" and use the birthday stamp from the July 2010 Kit of the Month "Happily Ever After" to stamp the image in the middle.  Then I used some wire to hang the happy banner from the June  2009 Kit of the Month "Perfect in Every Way".  I used my Stampin Up label punch to punch the label and used my black soot distress ink to stamp the word birthday, which is from an older kit of the month.  I used my Signo white pen to make the fake stitching around the edge.  Happy with the way this turned out.

Don't forget to leave a comment every day this week for a chance to win a set of Unity stamps.  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow for another day of Growing in Unity.

Loving both cards but really enjoyed all the detail on the birthday card. Banners are the coolest!
