UNITY KOTM Blog Hop!!!

****This post will stay at the top until Sunday evening!! Scroll down for new posts! ****

Hello and welcome! If you want to see all of the fabulous creations today, you will want to start at Angela's blog, if you haven't already! The hop will officially start at 11AM central time.

My card uses stamps from the April KOTM. The card base is black and the main image is stamped on kraft. The DP is from K&Co's Daydream collection. I used my distressing tool to distress the edges and added some black ribbon at the top! The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the birdies are colored in with prisma Tuscan Red pencil and blended with OMS.

Thanks for stopping by! Now hop on over to Laura's awesome blog! I am sure she will have something wonderful for you!
