A Soft & Sweet Unity Share...


Good morning Unity peeps!

For today's card I combined a couple of this week's challenges from a couple of different places. The layout of my card came from this week's SCS sketch (#283) and of course, I turned the sketch, because you all know by now that I can NEVER use a sketch as intended. LOL!

The other inspiration for the card came from this week PlayDate Cafe Challenge which Limelight Papercrafts is sponsoring this week. I have never heard of this challenge before, but I have a good feeling that I am going to be a regular over there. They have beautiful challenges with an incredibly talented dt for inspiration. Go check it out esp. since the prize this week is from Limelight Papercrafts!


I loved this soft color palette and immediately thought about this gorgeous collection from SEI which has a lot of the same colors in it.


Supplies Used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Best Wishes & Blooms **
*SEI paper collection
*watercolor pencils
*Martha Stewart border punch
*ribbon **
*KaiserCraft pearls **
*Websters Pages Sparklers **




I am not going to be around the forums much today. (Today is Ben's retirement ceremony on base...yippee!) But I still wanted to give away a prize, so leave a comment and I will choose a random commenter to receive Love Bug and announce the winner on my FWF/FFC blog post tomorrow.

And before I forget, it's a new month which means two wonderful things. 
A new Kit of the month:


And a wonderful new Guest Designer:

Now you need to hop on over to our new Guest Designer for June (yippee)....
