Unity Inspiration Thursday

Fourth of July Greetings to my friends from the U.S. of A.!
(and a happy belated Canada Day to my Canadian buddies to the North)
I like to think of myself as a true patriot...I love all things red,white and blue,
I get the chills every time I hear the National Anthem and I tear up when I see a veteran :)

The 4th is always such a fun holiday to celebrate and today at 
UNITY STAMP COMPANY
we have some amazing things to share...first a fabulous promo:

And as with every Inspiration Thursday, three lucky commentors will be chosen
at random to receive a $20 Unity Gift Certificate!  So don't forget to leave those comments :)

**You should be arriving from Renee Aslette's Blog**
(if anything goes awry, just head back to the Unity Blog to be redirected)

My card is clean-and-simple today...I think the sentiment and dog tags say it all!
 I did add a little texture to the die-cut postage mat with a Sizzix embossing folder.
And because I wanted to cut out the dog tags from the grey paper, I thought the
ball-chain strand would be so cute and such a nice touch!

The patterned paper is by Pebbles, Inc...for the stars I used a 1/4" round punch and
punched them from a patterned paper.

That's all from me today!
