Smile! Still Growing in Unity!

I have two posts today and you don't want to miss out on the MyGrafico Challenge sketch so be sure to scroll down to see the earlier post!

I have another fun Unity card to share with you  - this time, it's a Birthday card for my wonderful sister-in-law:




















Isn't it fun? I started with Watermelon cardstock from Close To My Heart and embossed some lines on it using my Scor-Pal. Then I lightly sanded the front so the white core of the cardstock would pop out. The band of Olive cardstock was added and I hand drew the stitching lines with a white gel pen. The Buttercup mat was corner rounded and also lightly sanded. And then the awesome image on a Labels 6 Nestie cut piece of White cardstock. This is one of the images in the November Kit of the Month (can you tell how much I LOVE these kits???) I colored the camera with Copics, using the same kind of colors as the papers. I also added a little pink sparkle pen on the camera's hearts but it's hard to see in the photo.

Last but certainly not least, I added the sentiment, tucked slightly under the image which was mounted on foam tape and a few matching buttons. I love the bright colors and it just makes me smile! I hope it brings a smile to the Birthday girl as well.

I think the snow has finally let up here - total of about 10-12 inches. I have to plow one more time and I think we will be able to get back to normal tomorrow. I will be posting another Unity card tomorrow as well as some picture of my puppy-girl out in the snow. Until then, hope you are staying warm!
