It's a Beautiful Day

Kudos to Unity for getting this kit to me in five days! I love the variety this kit offers and it has so many great sentiments. I particularly love this one since it reminds us to enjoy each day. I combined the clouds background (love it) and the flowers with one of my favourite sentiments in this kit to make this card for this week's Unity Addicts Challenge. UAC23 requires us to make a monochromatic card with a pop of colour. The frame behind the clouds was created by directly blotting my Crumb Cake ink pad repeatedly on kraft cardstock. As you know, I love simple cards and making this one gave me a few other ideas so you may see a few more cards in this style!

I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful day. We are having the most beautiful fall weather here in Toronto and it's supposed to be quite warm this week, too!
