Unity Addicts challenge #21! (a day late...)

Yesterday was our weekly Wednesday Unity Addicts challenge...and though I had this card made, I didn't know how to download the photos onto the new computer until this morning. Sorry girls! I'll do better next week! *grins*

Lisa (yes, the one who draws such FABULOUS designs for Unity) challenged us to "make a card all about LOVE and use RED, YELLOW (ex. Sunny), PINK and BLUE (ex. robins egg)."

I found this paper from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie line, and went with it, and added the "giggle" because it reminds of those teenage crushes/romances! *wink*
So this one was super-simple. I started with a base of Soft Sky, and added a panel of the Urban Prairie DP to the left side. I stamped "*giggle" onto Whisper White and traced around the letters iwth a pink Prismacolor pencil, added a *thin* mat panel of the Urban Prairie bright yellow 'solid', and a larger mat of the pink and red Urban Prairie pattern, which I edged with Real Red craft ink. I mounted the whole "giggle" panel ensemble to the card with foam tape, and then added three buttons to the bottom corner with glue dots. (Since I don't usually like my buttons to go nakey, I used thin strips of the yellow DP as 'thread' for the holes!) And, of course, I tied on a big red grosgrain ribbon to the left side. *wink*

Back in a bit with more! Stay tuned!

Supplies used:
Paper: Soft Sky CS (SU!); Urban Prairie line DP (BasicGrey)
Ink: Real Red craft ink, Certainly Celery (SU!)
Stamps: Giggle Grove (Unity Stamp Co.)
Other: Buttons (yellow = Making Memories, red = Michael's); red grosgrain ribbon (unknown); foam mounting tape (3M); mini Glue Dots; Prismacolor pencil

Ah, that is so sweet. Totally makes me think of a school girl crush! I can't wait to see you tomorrow night and hear all about your exciting weekend and make some creations together. Want to carpool again?
