Unity Guest Designer Challenge

Each month, Unity Stamp Co has a challenge to find a new KOTM guest designer. You just use your KOTM and apply it to whatever challenge is given by the lovely Jenn Buck. This month's challenge was a sketch. You can see the details on the contest HERE.

This is the first month that I've tried out. Mostly because it's only been going on for three months and I've been busy having a baby. ;) I decided I would give it a shot. There's a lot of talented people entering but there's no harm throwing my name into the hat.

For this card, I used Unity's May KOTM. I have no idea what the designer paper I used is. It's so hard to keep track when all you have left is scraps. But it's double sided paper. I used some Stickles on the center of the stamped flowers and the dragonfly. I added some Primas that I adorned with some rhinestones. Just a simple card.

Next, I used the sketch to make a layout. Now, I actually got carried away. This layout looked GREAT before I remembered that this is for Unity Stamp Co and I had to use stamps on it. So, I added stamping from the Unity May KOTM and I think it turned out a bit busy. I was going to try to do another layout but I'm not sure I'll have the time.

These pictures are from Brady's first birthday. Man, did he have a good time with that cake! He did what every parent hopes for, he made a GIANT mess! But that's one thing I adore about my sweet boy, he gets very excited on special occasions and it makes all the effort I put into the events very worth while.

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy your Tuesday!
