Hip Hopping into the Weekend

I just can't get enough of Unity! And although Thursdays are always the big Hip Hop day in the Unity forum, you really can find stuff going on in the forum and great inspiration in their gallery all week long. And now...Unity has it's own special ning network...check it out HERE.

Yesterday I was able to spend some time chatting and even managed to do one of the challenges. Here is the card I created for the Earth colors challenge:
I thought these colors would make for a nice boy birthday card and my son has several friends turning 6 this year so that was my inspiration. First I stamped Unity's worn grid with VersaMark. Then I stamped Numbers, Etc. in SU Not Quite Navy and highlighted the number 6 by tracing around it with a white gel pen. Finally I stamped the happy birthday sentiment (from Flirty Flowers), matted it, added the button/twine, and popped the panel up on foam squares for a little dimension.

Next up is a card I created for this week's SCS color challenge.
For this card I used stamps from Unity's Something Within set and some Creative Cafe felt flowers, along with a few brads.

Last night I also managed to finish a layout using Jennifer Buck's CAS Scrapbook Challenge #5. I realized after I created it that her post says part of the challenge is to use a little designer paper. I hope that she meant 'use some designer paper' not 'just use a little' because my whole layout is designer paper! I won some fabulous Pink Paislee Captivating papers from Marcee and I couldn't wait to use them. I thought the colors were perfect for this picture.

Here is a close up:

The chipboard pieces are Cosmo Cricket and I did use Unity's journal lines stamp (from the old Amazing Me set). I love this stamp because I can create a journal tag/box out of any paper/shape I want.
