Unity All Week - halfway mark

Hello all - make sure you scroll all the way down today. Double the Unity creations since this is also Unity Addicts Wednesday.

Above is my card for my third day at Unity all week. This card has a big dose of Unity Distressed Dots - one of my very fav background stamps. There is so much you can do with this one big stamp. It comes in hearts and stars too. Don't have these yet, but they are on my wish list.
I stamped it in Elegant Eggplant on Whisper White and punched three pieces with my SU Scallop Punch. Then I added buttons with twine and cut carefully to make petals. The card base also has dots stamped in the same color.
Continuing on.........
Below is my card for Unity Addicts Wednesday Challenge. Since we are right on the heels of July 4th, the challenges was simple - use Red, White, and Blue.
My card uses the distressed star from the January Kit of the Month.
It is actually a pretty simple layout. The star was stamped in white on the red cardstock, and then I stamped one blue star, cut it out, and used a raised dot adhesive to add dimension.
The "celebrate" sentiment is from my PTI Mega Mixed Messages set.
A smaller version of this card would make a cute invite to a 4th picnic celebration!!
Phew........that's it for tonight! Thanks for stopping by...........back tomorrow with another Unity treat!! :)
