Growing In Unity~Day 5


Well, this is it:  the last day of my Growing In Unity posts. Boo hoo. Time definitely flies when you are having fun!

Today for my last GIU project I am sharing a colorful and festive birthday card. I had the best time coloring those lanterns and banners!


The image and sentiment stamps come from Unity's July 2012 Kit of the Month, Ol' Bag of Fun, which I seem to have used a lot this week. There's just so many fun images and sentiments to play with in this KOM! I kept this pretty simple design-wise with such a busy image, adding just a single panel of patterned paper (from SEI's Vanilla Sunshine collection) and nothing else.

Well, all good things must come to an end, and this seems to be it for my GIU week. I've posted every day this week for Growing In Unity, and if you've missed any posts, feel free to go back and comment on them now. I will be randomly drawing a commenter from all of my Growing In Unity posts from this week to WIN two free Itty Bitty stamp kits, winner's choice! So be sure to leave a comment on this post, one comment per person please. But if you are a follower of my blog (or become a new follower), you can leave a second comment--for a second chance to win--on today's post:  just let me know that you are a follower and how you follow my blog!

I will leave commenting open through 11:59 p.m. EDT on Sunday, June 9, 2013, and will come back on June 10 to announce the winner here on my blog. If I can find a way to contact the winner via email, I'll be sure to do that, too. :)

So THANK YOU for visiting me this week! I've had a blast Growing In Unity with all of you and have had the best time reading your comments. Thanks for sharing this little slice of bliss with me!
Emily 

PS Today I'm also linking up with Unity's Friends With Flair. Welcome, friends! It's good to have you here today!
