Growing in Unity - Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of my stint as the GIU (Growing in Unity) girl.  I'm showing you my creations all week long and if you comment every day on my blog post, you'll be entered into a random drawing for 25 random stamps from the Unity Stamp Company.  Wowza, 25 stamps!  
Who wouldn't love that?!  2 winners will be selected.

This sweet card was built around one of my favorite Unity Sentiments by the lovely artist, Phyllis Harris.  The set is called "Before I Met You Tiny Dancer".   I actually received it in a grab bag....so see?  Those random stamps are pretty cool.   You'll see several projects from me this week with Love as the theme.  This card could be used romantically for Valentine's Day, a romantic celebration, or even a baby shower.

I wanted to build a beautiful backdrop and have you zero in on the sentiment, so I started by cutting a lace heart, just under 6" with my Cricut Explore.  If you don't have a die-cutting machine, use a large pink heart shaped doily as a nice substitute.  Next, I cut a smaller heart on white chevron cardstock and used my blending tool to blend in some Colorbox ink around the edges.

The lace heart and sentiment are the shining star to the floral backdrop from Graphic 45.  I embellished the heart with Pretty Pink Posh sequins glued with Stickles Firefly glitter glue and a silk May Arts Ribbon bow finishes everything, with a purple rhinestone.  I left the inside blank as this card could be used for a number of occasions.

Come back tomorrow for more Unity inspiration! Don't forget to leave a comment here so you can qualify for the random drawing.  And for a shameless plug, I'd love if you would come and like me on FB: http://www.facebook.com/wavingmywand because when I get to 500 likes, I'm having a big giveaway!
