Growing in Unity Day 1

Hi everyone! This week, I'll be showing cards using Unity stamps as part of Growing in Unity. I'm a big fan of Unity--they stamp so nicely and they have such a huge variety. Thanks, Unity, for the opportunity to participate. :)

For my card today, I went ultra CAS with my favorite gold embossing powder:


The card is pretty straightforward--I stamped the Born an Original roses on cream cardstock and heat embossed them in gold. I paired the image with a sentiment from {Wonderful You} Store Kit. I finished the card off with a green and gold double-sided satin ribbon. Here's a close-up:



As part of GIU, Unity sponsors a giveaway. One lucky person will win two Itty Bittys of his/her choice! With all the new CHA releases, I don't know how you'll choose.
