Let's Hang Out

I was playing with my Unity stamps last night and came up with this simple one-layer card using a previously uninked image and sentiment from Nothing But Blue Skies. I wasn't a Kit Club member when this kit was released but I bought it when it was on sale. In January, Rachel Bogner started a Neglected Unity Challenge to encourage Unity fans to use up all their stamps which is a great idea! You can find the thread in the Unity forum HERE.

Adorable Card Emily. I just recently inked up this image myself! Thanks for a shout out for my neglected stamp challenge. I only have a week left and many more sentiments in this set!
And in case you have an interest, Martha and I are working on a new challenge blog to clear out your stash. It is called Clear it Out Tuesdays. It can be found here: http://clearitoutchallenge.blogspot.com/

I really like this! Awesome colouring. ;)

Lovely bright colours! Love this CAS card Emily! Brilliant idea to be encouraged to use our neglected stamps, it's really a shame! I am also personally trying to work through my fair share of unused stamps. I see Rachels' note above, I think I need to go and take a look, except that if it is only for Unity stamps then I will have to skip it as I am very new to Unity.

This is lovely, those birdhouse pop off the white background and really provide a punch to the one layer.

Emily this is total perfection! I LOVE it! The sentiment is perfect! Love the CAS style of this - it's not really simple to make one layer look this fabulous!

Hi Emily,

I really love this card, so pretty coloring from you! And pretty on the just white card, it doesn't need more than this, but I think it's always so difficult to leave it like this, I feel like having to add things, while it's perfect!!!

Hugs,
Wendy
