Unity's Guest Designer Challenge
So I am taking another chance this week by entering this month's Unity Guest Designer challenge! Whew! It's a little scary, I'm not going to lie. I really feel like I put my heart on the line when I do things like this! Haha! Anyway, I don't have super high hopes because there were so many talented women who entered but at least I can say I gave it a shot, right? :) Anyway, this month's challenge was a sketch and the only other requirement was that we had to use either our May or June KOTM. I pulled out the adorable bee from the June KOTM since the image panels of the sketch were these 3 little circles. Now I wanted it to look a little bit different in each circle so I stamped the bees, colored them with my Prismacolor Pencils, and then punched them out by placing the bees in different sections of the circle (I hope that made sense). I paired the bees with my fun Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday paper and made it a little vintage looking by sponging the edges of my paper pieces and sewing all around the sides (this time I remembered to sew just the top flap). The sentiment is also from the June KOTM and I punched it out with my word window punch. I then spruced up the card a little bit more by adding some Kaisercraft pearls, vanilla taffeta ribbon and a giant yellow flower! Overall I REALLY like how it turned out. In fact, it is one of my favorites yet! I just hope that I'm not the only one who likes it! ;) Hehe.
Well, thanks again for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying your Wednesday afternoon!
