Growing in Unity {Day 4}

Surprise, it's another encouragement card! When I saw Simply. Love. Deeply by Simple Stories, I just had to have it. The journalling block with flourishes is so beautiful and I love the subway art style of the two sentiments. It's perfect. This card allows one of those sentiments to shine. Sometimes in life when I get lost in dark places, I really do forget the good stuff. I need this reminder to not let the bad overshadow the good because the good is so important. I used four different patterns from Basic Grey's What's Up collection. The sentiment was stamped directly on to one of them.

I will be choosing one random winner from all the comments left on my Growing in Unity posts this week and that lucky lady will win two itty bitty stamps of her choice. Thanks so much for stopping by to enjoy today's Unity project!
