don't stop believing

I made this card using the above sketch for Unity Stamp Company's (http://www.theunitystampco-challenge.blogspot.com/2014/03/feel-better-soon.html) be inspired Challenge that ends April 9. I just recently purchased Totally & Utterly Amazing Kit of the Month May 2013 from Unity and haven't used it yet, so I had an excuse with this challenge! I also bought Your Love Lights the Way that I have used on another project and will post soon. Now about my card! :) I used Close To My Heart My Reflections Balloon Ride Sorbet ( http://shannonmills.ctmh.com/Default.aspx) that I purchased from Shannon earlier this year. The diagonal PP is Colorbok Spring Morning Pattern Pack. The butterfly and "don't stop believing" are both stamps from the Unity Totally & Utterly Amazing Kit. The floral ribbon and scalloped paper piece that I stamped on are both RAK from Joy Meadows from a Card Swap we participated in August 2013 with Society of Stampaholics (http://dominodebi.typepad.com/sos/).  I used Versafine Onyx Black Pigment Ink on both stamps and then accented them with Sharpies 80s Glam Green Argyle and a Magenta Sharpie on the sentiment. On the butterfly, I used Inc.Starlightz Yellow Glitter Gel Pen, Zig Memory System EK Success Azure 0.5mm Pigment Ink Pen, American Crafts Fuschia Glitter Marker, Sharpie 80s Glam Leg Warmer Orange & Jellie Pink to give it some color.

here's a close-up of the butterfly- I don't know if you can see it, but the word "dream" is embedded in the stamp
This is the inside spread and the other side of the CTMH Balloon Ride PP. The strips on the left are actually off the cut-off strip at the top: Learn from yesterday Live for today and Hope for Tomorrow. The butterfly journaling card was a free gift from Unity for my order. I also used the 4x6 journaling card to make this card a 4x6 card! I plan on selling this card this spring when it gets warmer! Lisa and I are going to share a table  for $5 and sell cards/homemade scrap goodies in a woman's front yard. I'm thinking about selling my 3 Girl JAM cotton bags- I just need to decorate them! LOL! I may do that at my next crop night next Friday! Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! I'm volunteering at a TobyMac concert tonight with BigFish FM here in town tonight and I'm super excited!! It will be my second concert volunteering with them so I know they will give us a t-shirt to wear during the concert and I'll have to return it. I just can't wait until 5PM when I have to be there!! :)
