Thinking of You with Unity, Serendipity, and Winnie & Walter

Hi, Friends.....

I am back with a last-minute card for the Winnie & Walter Color Combo Challenge for July. Take a look
at the fabulous inspiration photo and color palette that Heather H. chose for this month....YUM!! This is the last day for this challenge and I have had a lot of fun with these colors. Thank you, Heather H, for such an fresh and inspiring palette!!

On this card, I pulled out an old UFO (unfinished object) from my stash. I love this Unity Stamp mother bird on the nest. I stamped it with Versamark on a scrap of patterned paper and did an emboss resist with Distress Inks. LOVE!! I framed it with a dry embossed panel that I sponged with more Distress Ink. The colors turned out muted, but started out brighter like the palette. I love this soft effect.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Unity - Love
Serendipity - Thinking of You
Sizzix - Fancy Labels die set
Pretty Pink Posh - Sparkling Clear Mix sequins
Versafine Ink - Smokey Gray
Paper Studio - Woodgrain embossing folder
Versamark Ink
Distress Inks - Bundled Sage, Twisted Citron, Mowed Grass, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean
Shimmery ribbon from my stash
White cardstock and K&Co. Paper Scraps

Hope you liked my card! Thank you for stopping by!!!
