Inspired Unity

I made this card for the Ways to Use It challenge at SCS yesterday and for a Unity Hip Hop challenge to use light blue. The SCS challenge was to be frugal by re-using something or use an inexpensive item on your project. The lighter panel in the corner was a mistake piece for another project which I re-purposed for this card. There is a hudge smudge on that panel, but it is hidden by the top panel. The sentiment is a stamp I won, so that is frugal, as well.

I sponged both of the panels, with Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue, and then stamped them with the dream tree and swirl stamp from Growing in Unity (Unity Stamp Co.). I used the mirror technique to do the sentiment. That flower is from my Floral Frenzy kit from Gina K and the punched branches are from a Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great Friday!
