Growing in Unity Day 5

Happy Friday!  It is supposed to hot and sunny here today - finally!  I'm winding up my week as the Growing in Unity Girl, and it has been so much fun, especially reading everyone's comments.  Thank you so much for all your feedback.  As mentioned before, I am using the January 2014 Kit of the Month, Be your own kind of Beautiful for all my projects.   Again, today I have made a couple of projects using the same stamp, the three flowers outline.  On the first card I also used the flower stamp that looks like a daisy and I played around with the centres on the flowers.  I also used the wood grain background and one of the sentiments.
To be honest, I wasn't sure how happy I was with this project, and debated not posting it, so I tried something else.  This time I masked off an oval and created a background and stamped the image in black.  I added a sentiment in a banner and kept with some softer colours.

I've also got one more for you.  The image is actually an Itty Bitty, but the sentiment is from the KOM.  This is my dad's birthday card which is today, and he has a scooter so I thought the Itty Bitty was appropriate.  I beginning to think I made be a little obsessed with banner dies.
Again, thank you for joining me for my Growing in Unity this week.  Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win two free Itty Bitty stamps from Unity.  Make sure to visit their website to check out all the weekend promotions and new releases.  Check back on Monday to see if you were the lucky winner.

Have a great weekend!
Michele
