Growing In Unity... Hip Hop Style!



Happy Hip Hop!!


And welcome back Day 4 of Growing in Unity with me!!


To start the Hop at the beginning and see lots of eye candy from the Unity and Ippity DT girls, then please visit the Unity blog to get started. And if you are already in the middle of the Hop and coming to me by way of Karen's blog then you are on the right track!!
My inspiration for today's card came from looking through my paper pack from Pink Paislee's Bayberry Cottage collection.  I just love the graphic prints and bold colors of this collection and decided to go with a color blocking type design on my card using the lime green and black prints contained in the collection.  And by adding a couple graphics of my own using Ippity stamps!


I used the Happy Birthday stamp from the Life's Little Moments set.  And also I added stamps to the last two strips on the card!

Two rhinestones added the perfect touch to the card sentiment.  And I topped it off with a black and white checkered ribbon with a rhinestone center.  (Do you like that Maria??)  :-)




The green panel has the flower strip from the A Moment in Time set.  I added some rhinestones to each of the flower centers.  The bottom strip uses the houndstooth rectangle stamped side by side three times.  It is also from the A Moment in Time set!

Need to get some of these Ippity stamps?  Be sure to click on the Ippity Chick Locator button from the Ippity blog to find a retailer near you!

This maybe isn't my normal style, but I love the clean lines and graphic elements of this card!!
