Unity {Inspiration}

Happy Thursday...it's time for some 
UNITY INSPIRATION
along with fabulously fun flowers by PETALOO
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**
Remember to comment as you go!  
Three lucky commentors will each receive a $20 Unity Gift Certificate
This month's focus at Petaloo is their Color Me Crazy Flowers.  
These come to you in white and can easily be transformed with whatever color you
like by spritzing, stamping, inking, coloring, etc...or just leave them in their natural state :)
For today's card I wanted to use some papers from Dear Lizzy, so I went with 
Georgia Peach ColorShine spritz by Heidi Swapp.  

I stamped the sentiment from the May Kit-of-the-Month onto a frame found on one 
of the patterned papers...it worked out just great!  I embossed the mint green paper 
behind it with one of my new folders by Brenda Walton.
The "celebrate today" sentiment is also a part of the May KOTM.


This particular Shabby Cut Canvas Flower came in two layers.  
I wanted a certain 'fit' so I removed the back layer and then layered the flower
onto a green mulberry paper flower (also from Petaloo) to act as the leaves.

I think it turned out to be a very nice and elegant card for the new couple :)

**Time now to head over to Shilo Miles' Blog**

Enjoy hoppin', my Unity friends!
