For today's Growing In Unity card I used the December 2011 Kit of the Month sketch for my design and stamps from the July 2011 KOTM. I usually struggle with sympathy cards but I'm happy with the way this one turned out as it has a touch of colour that seems to sort of "brighten" it up.
To create this card I cut a piece of blue and white wood grain paper, stamped the flower image in grey and then black and then mounted the strip onto a die cut scallop. I added a strip of ribbon to the card base before adhering the panel and stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner. I added a nice big double bow (that was created using my Bow Easy) and a black button and voila...all done.
Thanks so much for your kind words this week and don't forget to comment on all my posts this week for your chance to win a free Unity set. I'll post the winner early next week to give everyone a chance to finish up with their New Year's plans (including myself LOL!). See you tomorrow with my last two cards.
