GUI - Day 3

Good morning!  Today I really like how this card turned out.  I LOVE this stamp from the August 2011 KOTM kit.  I love Unity's Kit of the Month club.  Each month for only $35 shipped you receive a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of fabulous rubber.  It is so much fun getting happy mail each month :)  If you are sign up please tell them who sent you....referrals are rewarded!! ;)

For todays project I created a card for my fabulous husband.  Our anniversary is October 14th - can't wait for our upcoming weekend get-a-way! A quick background - he is a 5th generation carnival owner/operator and when I saw this image in August kit and it was just perfect for so many things in our family.

It has been a LONG time since I participated in any online challenges and I love to do so...so I found one to get me started on this card.  I used the sketch from CPS current challenge.

I used the Swiss Dots cuttlebug to add some texture to the patterned paper.  I then added some ribbon and adhered it to the card.  Then I stamped the ferris wheel onto some white cardstock and freehand cut the shape around it.  I then used my Creative Memories decorative trimmer to cut the curvy tag.  I stamped the "You are Amazing" sentiment (also from the August 2011 KOTM) - what a fun and perfect font! I sponged some ink around the edges of each and adhered the tag and image.  I then added a fabric button and sprayed the card with some Tattered Angels glitter mist.  Just a simple piece of the green patterned paper to the inside of the card and voila.



Thank you so much for sharing this fun week with me!  Remember to come back each day and leave a comment for your chance to win your choice of one of the following Unity kits sponsored by Unity Stamp Company:
