Two challenges in one

The sketch I used for this card is from Mojo Monday Week 97 Challenge.

The colors are from the Unity Addict Challenge Inspiration from SCS's forum.

My hubby's birthday is this Friday so the colors from the Unity Addicts are perfect. I always have such a hard time making masculine looking cards. This time it was easy. I had the sketch and had the papers and inks I was going to need. It came together quickly. I was just a bit disappointed that the Unity tree did not come through white. When I inked over the clear embossing it bled through. I tried it twice but had the same result. Other than that I'm happy with it.

My Girl's First Communion

This layout of my daughter in her first communion gown. I just love black and white. I also used a Unity Stamp from their Something Within set. I just love the scriptures. So appropriate for my subject matter.

Here is a close up of the stamp.

The acompanying layout was a candid moment. I had taken several pictures and she told me that she was thirsty so she ran to the fountain to take a drink. For some reason I found this action while waring her white dress to be endearing. I snaped the picture and I love the way it turned out. I stamped the "Beyond Words" sentiment on the ribbon This stamp is also from Unity. No big mystery, after all I have really become addicted to thier stamps.

I appreaciate your comments.

Unity Addicts Challenge

Here is my submission for the 7/8/2009 Unity Addicts Challenge

I've been so busy lately with work and the kids but today I decided to make some time to make a card for the Unity Addicts Challenge. I love the soft and girly colors from this challenge. Thanks for the inspiration Kim.

I used cardstock, some papers from Martha Stewart. I stamped the Scrappy Flower. I just love this stamp! I won it -yes free- during hip hop. I lucked out! The sentiment is from Simply Said set. I also added some dewdrops in the corners.

I hope you guys like it. My card is simple but I like the way it turned out.
