Unity Challenges

I hope that you all had a great LONG weekend! Here are some Unity challenges that I have been meaning to post.
Unity's Thursday Project: This first card was using a technique from AJ. I just love how that glitter pops on the blue paper!! The sentiment was punched out from this Cosmo paper.
Recipe:
Stamps: Giggle Grove
Ink: stazon jet black, wild wasabi
Paper: acetate, get happy dp (cosmo cricket), wild wasabi
Accessories: red ribbon, dazzling diamonds, crystal effects, copics, slit punch, word window.


Unity's Friday Inspiration Challenge: Shannon's challenge was for us to take a current trend and step it up a bit or start a new one! This was a tough one for me! I finally decided on "exploring" these stitched suede flowers and designer snaps (We R Memory Keepers) from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.
Recipe:
Stamps: gratitude=joy
Paper: so saffron, whisper white
Ink: old olive, so saffron
Accessories: flower patch (We R Memory Keepers), frenzy snap (We R Memory Keepers), SU! ribbon
Scrapbook Sketch Challenge: Shocking, isn't it?? I actually scrapped! Boy is it a difficult task for me too! But I did it!! :-)
Recipe:
Stamps: giggle grove
Paper: pumpkin textured, soft sky textured, everyday tango dp (My Mind's Eye),
Accessories: tags (Cupcake Scrapshop kit), animal crackers buttons & ribbon (making memories), felt alphabet stickers (K&I)
