Unity {Inspiration}

Welcome! It's a great day at Unity Stamp as we share new inspiration
and of course, a great deal from Unity this week:

**I'm following along behind the lovely Renee Aslette today**
And as with every Thursday's Hop, be sure to comment as you may be one of the three
lucky commentors to receive a $20 Unity Gift Certificate

 I have used the NEW Layers of Life Stamp Kit for my first card

I'm the proud owner of some new Faber-Castell Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, so I 
chose to use them to color in the rulers.  I then spritzed on some Terra Cotta Walnut Ink
by Tsukineko (Imagine-Crafts).  The embossing folder is by Sizzix and I love using it 
on masculine cards!

I have a dear, 37 year-old co-worker/friend who was diagnosed with
 Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer this past Fall.  I made this card to send to her :)

I love that this ribbon is all decked out in butterflies!  I stamped the image onto pink
cardstock and then colored in the butterflies with Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.  I also
shaded the outer areas with a darker pink, although it's a little hard to tell in the photo.
I used the NEW MAY SENTIMENT KIT 
(releasing NEXT WEEK on my project)
This kit will be available to you NEXT WEEK, but in the meantime remember to get the
 CURRENT SENTIMENT KIT for only $10. -
**Next stop is the sweet and talented, Shilo Miles' Blog**

I have lots more to share today, so I'll be seeing you again soon!
