The Return of the Dream Tree
I haven't used this stamp in what seems like such a long time. This tree is the reason I began buying stamps from Unity Stamp Company (and shortly thereafter I discovered their fabulous service). The tree is part of a set called Growing in Unity (I think), but was offered for a short time as a single. That is when I picked it up. I made this card for a challenge as part of Unity's second anniversary/birthday. Carole, a long time customer of Unity, issued a challenge to use your very first stamp you purchased on a project. I was more than happy to get the Dream Tree out and ink it up!
I used this opportunity to play along with Caardvark's challenge to create a monochromatic card. I think I may have missed the deadline, but I still linked it up and had fun in the process.
I'm pretty sure you can't see it in the photo, but I spritzed my card stock with Vanilla Smooch and punched out my butterflies. I am really loving that stuff. I need to break into another color and see if I love it even more!
Thanks for stopping by!
