Day 4 - Growing in Unity - Unity Addicts Challenge



Day 4 of Growing in Unity! In case you don't know what Growing in Unity is all about it's a way for those who love Unity stamps to share their Unity creations and be in the spotlight for a week. This was started a long time ago and recently passed on to me to organize and I am so happy to be a part of it. If you want to be a part of the fun check out this thread in the Unity SCS forum for more details.


It's Wednesday which means Day 4 of my GIU week but it also means a new Unity Addicts Challenge! I'm so thrilled to be the Unity Customer Challenge Coordinator, I've loved Unity forever! All the girlies involved with Unity are so super sweet and fabulous.

This week the challenge is called "Poppin Flowers" (yes I am coming up with the corny names myself, just trying to make it fun!)Use any Unity/Ippity flower but it make "pop". Whether you use dimensionals, a fun coloring technique, whatever you can think of that will have your flowers "pop" off the page.

I went somewhat simple and used pop dots to create a layer with my flowers. My daughter got a necklace at the zoo and they gave her a gift box with it. SO, I took that box and used it to make a little set of notecards. (ok I only made two cards so far at least...)




The box:

Be sure to swing by all week for a chance to win a Unity Kit just by leaving a comments. I will also toss in an IPPITY Kit from my stash as well! SOOO, THERE WILL BE TWO WINNERS THIS WEEK FOR MY GIU!! I will select a random winner and announce it next weekend!

If you are looking for a challenge be sure to swing on by the Unity Challenge forum for the newest Unity Addicts Challenge.


Well that's all for now!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, what a great pop of color these are! How fun! The flowers are so fun and look like they could pop right off the card. Recycled box, too cute, great idea.
Thanks for sharing.
