Happy spring!!!

I just love the 1st day of spring, probably one of my favorite days of the year!

I have a little card to share today using Unity's latest Kit of the Month, Always Begin Again and an oldie but goody sentiment kit called Inside & Out, which I'm not sure they make anymore because I couldn't find it on their website. They should make it because it was awesome! A whole sheet of red rubber filled with great sentiments for the inside and outside of your cards! I didn't take a pic but the sentiment inside from the same kit says, Thanks for being you.

I stamped the sentiment, masked it and then stamped the beautiful you flowers all around and watercolored them. There are a few gems in the centers of some of the flowers but its kind of hard to see in the pics.

I'm linking up with Unity's Friends with Flair today and can't wait to hop through all of the wonderful link-ups this weekend to see what  everyone's been creating with their Unity stamps!

I am also linking up to the Anything Goes March challenge at Anya, Oddies, and Others.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Very pretty card! Lovely coloring! I am not familiar with this inside, outside set; I would love for Unity to offer it, so I could check it out.

Love this sentiment, Crystal. I've seen different versions of it but the "walk forever in my garden" is so lovely. Gorgeous colors and layers of stamping. I also wanted to drop you a note and let you know how much your envelope decorating has inspired me. I went a little stamp crazy yesterday but I will get there! Hope you have a great week this week... xx Donna K

PS...your card is on the Unity blog today! just sayin'
