GIU Day 5 - Thank You

Hello everyone!! Welcome to Day 5 of my Growing in Unity week. Today is my last day.

I thought it was appropriate to thank you all for the lovely comments you have been leaving me this past week. Here's what I've made.

 I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4.125" x 5.375" and inked it with Distress Ink Antique Linen. I inked the flower in the Unity Stamps {itty bitty} - Relax Renew Restore stamp set using  purple and green markers and stamped repeatedly on the panel to create a kind of pattern paper. I die cut a oval from white cardstock and while the die cut was still in the die, I inked it with Antique Linen. This leaves a nice white border around the edges. I colored the border with the same green marker. I stamped the sentiment "Thank You" from the Unity Stamps - Basically Said stamp set on it. I also colored the edges of a top folding A2 card base with the same green color. Then I adhered the stamped panel on to the card base. I mounted the sentiment panel with foam tape.

How do you like this card? Let me know in the comments. Unity Stamps has generously offered a prize of a grab bag of 25 random stamps to 2 people who comment on my GIU posts. You have until Sunday night to comment on all my GIU posts. I will pick a winner on Monday. In case you have not visited my previous posts, please click here:

I highly recommend you to check out my GIU partner - Crystal O. Minkler's blog. She's very talented and I'm sure she has a wonderful project to inspire us today.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please do visit me on Monday to see if you are one of the winners. Hope you have a great day.
