Sending Love Your Way


I wanted to include some love-themed cards for my last OWH box, so I pulled out some Unity stamps and took some inspiration from their monthly challenge by way of the sketch and colors, and this is what I came up with.
The borders were done with a MS doily punch and I added some yellow ribbon from my stash. The Unity balloons were colored with Tombow markers and the sky was sponged with some Ranger Broken China ink. The sentiment (from Itty Bitty Sending my Love) was matted with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle, and all of those tiny hearts were in my doo-dad box of negative die cuts. Lucky for me, I had just the right colors in yellow, red, navy and sage!

I'm entering this into the Unity Friday Friends with Flair, as well as the Unity  "Be Inspired" challenge.


Thanks for the visit, I always appreciate it!
