Growing In Unity Day 3 – Happy Birthday!

If you’re looking for the Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday post, please click HERE

Welcome to day 3 of my growing in unity week!  Today’s original project started out as an epic FAIL!!  I had a completely different treat in store for you complete with a process video, but 30 seconds into filming, the battery in my camera died!  I replaced it with my fully charged backup…it must have sat too long because it was dead too!  No video!!  I’ll try to have it ready for tomorrow/!  So  today’s card was put together in a hurry!  I hope you like it!

I used another print and cut file from the Silhouette store, this time in a birthday theme.  My daughter’s birthday is in a couple of weeks (and then her wedding is the following week!!) so I had cake on my brain!  The real “gem” in this card is the chevron background!  I love it!  It’s a part of the Unity stamp set called  About the Inches.  It’s a great set to document a weight loss journey, but as an added bonus, there’s this AWESOME chevron background stamp!! I used three different shades of blue chalking ink to ink up the stamp.  I dabbed them on randomly but in keeping with a bit of an ombre effect.  Love it!!   I also used part of the Celebrate stamp set again, for my sentiment. Viola…the card came together quick and easy!
