Unity GIU Girl Day #1: Peacock Love!

Hey friends! I'm the Growing in Unity Girl again this week. WHOO HOO!

Today, I am sharing a card I made using a fun new peacock embossing folder I picked up. I love the peacock trend right now. I inked directly on the embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. I then applied purple Stickles to the paper. The sentiment is from Unity She Said stamp set, and I heat embossed that in white. Added some twine and feathers to finish the card.

I am also entering this into Moxie Fab World's Create Your Own Background Paper Challenge! I love to play over there to get my creativity flowing.
Now for the fun part: Unity is letting me give away TWO Itty Bittys to one lucky commenter! I will choose a random commenter from my blog all week and they can choose any two of their choice. Sound fun? Cool! See you tomorrow :)

ERIN, I love the way you used this stamp. I have it but never thought about using it like this, nice work.
Your Tag is really neat,another good idea, having the two ends and then tied them with twine. Now lets talk about the feather. I have a question for you...Did the feather inspire the card, or did the card inspire the feather? Very good job.
With Love Judi
