It's Hip Hop!

That's right boys and girls today is Thursday so today is all about the Hip Hop over at the Unity Forum on SCS, and you know you can't miss that! As with every Thursday, today includes a fabulous hop through the Unity Design Team members, stamp specials, challenges, and give-aways all day long! What more could anyone want for a fun filled day of Unity? Today I am sharing a card I created for my Grandma's birthday, her birthday was actually last week, but since she was coming to visit this week we are celebrating her birthday today! Today after work we are eating a nice dinner, cake, and of course presents! So when I was deciding which stamp to use for her birthday card I was instantly drawn to this wonderful Unity stamp from this months Unity Kit of the Month - ...another sweet day! I think this floral stamp is my favorite image that comes with this set, it is just so darn elegant! Plus, this card works perfectly with what I used to do while I visited my Grandma growing up. I used to spend hours upon hours on my Grandma's living room floor with a pair of scissors and construction paper, I think I've come a long way since then...but have I?Do you like the coloring details? I love how these flowers came out, I masked the first image after I stamped and duplicated the image. I used two shades of green on the leaves and two shades of yellow on the petals with my Copic markers and I think it really works well together. Plus the color combination of brown and yellow really pops off the page, I am hoping she likes what I created. And before I sign off for the day....be sure to leave a comment on this post to be entered to win a Unity single! That's right ladies, blog candy! Not any blog candy either, but Unity blog candy! I will select one winner to get a great Unity single, so be sure to comment! Have a great day everyone, enjoy the Hip Hopping!
