Growing In Unity Day 2

Welcome to day two of  Growing In Unity.  Today's card uses this pretty {ippity} stamp set Make Your Mark  and one of my favorite {ippity} stamps A Bit of Burlap.





I started my card with the Bit of Burlap stamp and randomly stamped it with haystack Palette Ink.  Then using the leaves and rose from the  Make Your Mark stamp set,  I stamped over the burlap background with blue, purple and green Fresh Ink. A Martha Stewart punch set was used for the flap of the card. Some purple sheer ribbon and coordinating purple paper from Hero Arts Completed the card. I think this is my favorite card for this week.



Don't forget, everyone who leaves a comment this week will be entered into a drawing to win their choice of two itty bitty stamp sets from Unity.   Thanks so much for looking and have a great day!

Oh wow, this card is gorgeous! I LOVE that burlap background stamp. Gives just the right amount of texture, without competing with the main image.

Beautiful! I wouldn't have guessed that you stamped the texture on the paper- it looks like designer paper! Love your colors and the lacy cutout!

Gorgeous card! At first glance I thought it was patterned paper, and then as I read, I saw you made it - beautiful! Is Unity/Ippity still offering ink?
