It's a HIP HOP REWIND!

HIP HOP! If this is your first hip hop and you just decided to come and visit me, make sure you start at the Unity Blog for any special deals Angela might have for you and to start the blog hop! Follow your way through all the blogs and there will be some blog candy waiting at the end of the hop for you! w00t!
This week, we're focusing on OLDIES BUT GOODIES! With all the AMAZING stamps released thse past few weeks, some of our stamps get a little lonely and sit uninked {GASP!} So today we're busting out our older sets which are every bit as good as the new sets:D I decided to rewind ALL THE WAY TO THE BEGINNING! Way back in the day when I was doing product reviews for SCS, Unity was a new company and was one of the first products I got to review! Angela sent each of us a stamp set to play with and to write our review about. Spring has Sprung is the kit she sent me and I still love it *to this day*. It's no longer a kit, but is broken into singles now!


Here is my card, using "flower with stem" which used to be part of the kit:
I paper-pieced the flower petals and leaves with bits of the dp and cardstock I used on the rest of the card, it's SO much faster than coloring and I was a bit lazy today;)
The dp I used is by October Afternoon and the cardstock I used is Vanilla, Summer Sunrise (PTI), and Kiwi Kiss (SU!) I also added some dew drops, because they're just so easy to add and I love the texture they add as well:) The ribbon is by PTI and the butterfly punch is by Martha Stewart!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your HIP HOP REWIND today! I'll see you in the forums for some HIP HOPPIN' FUN! Head on over and check out my girl Patter's Blog and see what kind of gorgeousness she has for you today:)
