Happy Monday!

Lightning, thunder, pouring rain and one very distressed golden retriever, poor thing! Hope your week is starting out with a bang! This week, my h{ippity} hop card is based on the color challenge over at "All Things Unity" along with the 3D flower challenge for ippity. I found this scrap of Scenic Route paper, left over from cutting out a nestability label and used the negative space on my card. The flower was made by layering punches, adding a bit of distress inks and curling up the petals. I white embossed the sentiment from the "Where You Should Be" set and added a bit of outlining with a white signo pen. Some
stitching and a bit of ribbon finished it off nicely.




This weeks special is the "Where you should be" set. You'll get a free card kit included with purchase, featuring a set of 6X6 patterned papers and coordinating embellishments - just click here or on the Stampippity link at the top of the page!

Be sure to check out the Unity blog for the full list of this week's participants! Your next stop on the hop is Susan!

FANTASTIC card! I love it! I'm card-challenged so I can always use new ideas to scraplift! Sorry about your dog. Poor thing, it's no fun when they get scared and you can't explain to them.
