My First Card Challenge with Unity – A Christmas Card with CTMH colors

I’ve been making cards for Unity’s Be Inspired Challenge for a couple of months now, but finally…I am going to be brave enough to actually upload an image and enter the card in the challenge.

CLK Unity Sept Challenge

Unity Challenge 32

The challenge, which runs monthly beginning on the 3rd Tuesday, offers up a couple of sketches and a color combo which can be followed loosely using Unity Stamps.  I chose one of their newer Poinsettia stamps, as I thought that would work nicely for a pinkish bloom, which I thought matched CTMH’s Taste of Summer papers perfectly for a nontraditional Christmas card. I added a touch of glitz with the Foil Tape, which is an extra shiny Washi-like tape which I just love and know I will be using a lot, and a few Bitty Sparkles. The card was quick and easy to put together, and I’ll be throwing some more together in some more traditional colors too.

I can’t wait to see what the next challenge Unity does.  I love their stamps, and doing challenges,  which I plan to be posting more of.
