Growing in Unity Day 3

Hello! I hope you're having a great Wednesday. Today I'm back with another Unity card as part of my Growing in Unity week. I'm also on the Unity blog. If you want to see my earlier GIU posts from this week, you can see them HERE and HERE.

For today's card, I wanted to make a more masculine card using the October 2011 KOTM:

Imagine Dream Fly

I stamped the bird on white with a dark purple ink and fussy cut the image. Then, I stamped the sentiment out of the same kit, added some die-cut chevrons, and inked the edges of the card. Here's a close-up:

Imagine Dream Fly Close-Up

The bird is so cool--I love that stamp! The sentiment was intentionally slightly off-set to balance the tail of the bird. (The way I stamp, it very well could be an oops, but in this case, it was purposeful--ha ha)

As part of GIU, Unity sponsors a giveaway. One lucky person will win two Itty Bittys of his/her choice! To enter to win, leave a comment on this post. Each day, you can leave another comment on my GIU posts for additional chances to win. All comments must be received by 9:00 AM CST on Saturday, and I'll be randomly drawing a name later on Saturday. 

Thanks for looking! I'll be back again tomorrow with another GIU (but a little later in the day). I'll also be sharing my first Play Date Cafe DT card. I'm excited to share it!
