Growing in Unity - Day 4

It's Hip Hop Thursday! If you haven't already done the Unity blog hop, make sure to stop over at Angela's blog today and visit the fabulous Unity Design Team blogs. Also, if you have never participated in Hip Hop over in the Unity forum...what are you waiting for! :) It is a ton of fun! Come on by and introduce yourself. The Unity team and customers are all such a nice and welcoming group.

Today I have another card to share using my favorite Unity set gratitude=joy. I created this card for the Limited Supplies challenge 201 over on SCS.
The challenge was to use some of your favorite things. So, of course I used my Unity stamps and some of my favorite colors...SU sage shadow, brown, and white. I tend to be drawn mostly to earthy tones like greens, blues, and browns. The challenge also called for two or three of your favorite embellishments. For this card I chose ribbon, my MS small scalloped circle punch, and SU's hodgepodge hardware. However, I still felt the card needed a little something more so I did use a brown Prima flower which I folded in half, then in half again, and tucked underneath the ribbon to give more dimension to that side of the card.

I was also inspired by Christi's new venture this year - Exercise Your Creativity. Her first challenge is Doors. So, I decided to create a tri-fold card (which is not something I usually do) and make the outside of the card kind of feel like a door. I thought the hodgepodge hardware felt like a little handle that you need to turn to open the card. Then I decorated the inside of the card too.


Don't forget to leave another comment this morning for your chance to win a Unity single. I will announce the winner sometime this evening over in the Unity forum, Hip Hop Winners thread. And make sure to stop back by tomorrow for my final project of the week!
