Donna Downey meets Unity!

Oh man, can you think of a more exciting combination? I think not! Donna Downey and Unity have partnered up to bring you the amazing new "The Artist in You" kit, and let me tell you, this is a HUGE set! The floral images and sentiments are so wonderful!

For my card, I went with another soft, whispy color combination: Lavender Moon and Kraft! I stamped a swooshy floral image in Fresh Snow right on the card base up at the top (kinda hard to see in the photo). Next I layered a piece of PTI dp and sewed it to the card base. I stamped the large floral image in Lavender moon on a piece of Rustic White cardstock and sewed it to a piece of Lavender Moon cardstock, and cut one edge with my EK Success border punch. I notched a half-circle out with my 1.25" circle punch and layered a button inside. Pretty simple card but I really wanted these amazing stamps to speak for themselves:)
Head on over to Angela's blog for a list of more blogs to see! Also, go leave Donna some love for her amazing new Unity kit!

Check out what the mailman brought me today, have you ever seen a more beautiful sight? Once again, I think not.
