Growing in Unity: Day Three

I wouldn't describe myself a natural when it comes to being crafty.
So I LOVE that Unity Stamp Co. offers so many ways to help me get started.
Their Kit of the Month Sketch Challenges are my FAVORITE!!!
I especially like this months sketch:

Here is my take on the design:
I moved the embellishment to the center, I liked it better there :)
This sentiment is used a lot; mainly because it's so versatile: 
birthday, wedding, shower, etc. it just seems to work for everything!
The fancy paper is by Crate Paper;  So CUTE right?!
I used my Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles to cut the circles.

I also made another card {I don't want you to get bored!)
Sometimes it's kinda nice to have a card without a sentiment on hand:
This was my first time using this Echo Park stamp and now I can't believe I waited so long!
It's from the set I Adore You.  How vintage and pretty?! 
It fit my Spellbinders Labels Four fairly well too.

This week sure is flying by! Hope you're having fun...

LOVE the I Adore You set!
I make quite a few cards without sentiments, that way you can customize to each situation.
