Hipping and Hopping and Hangin' Out!

Wow - I love all the new sweet ladies who show up for hip hop. YAY!!! Welcome!! Do you know how EASY it is to win a prize for Hip Hop?? Not to mention the next step - My Unity Place (MUP). What fabulousness does Angela have in store? Go sign in (free) and see!

Here's my Unity Colors My World challenge card. I hope you like it. We were to use blue, green and a neutral to make a card. I also combined it with the Unity Addicts challenge to make a card celebrating Earth Day or use something recycled. So, here you go:

Can you figure out the recycled part? Look closer:



See that blue thingy with the ribbon through it? It's a recycled Monster Energy Can pull tab. I stamped the tree in StazOn black twice, then colored (SU! markers) and cut out the tree. I mounted it on dimensional foam. The flowers were colored with SU! markers, and the cardstock in all Bazzill (exept for the Pebbles kraft base). I used MM gingham ribbon, and Offray irridescent ribbon. I added stickles (Ranger) around the edges of the tree.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy your day, and that you'll visit all the fabulous ladies on the Customer hop today. Be sure to see Angela's specials and don't forget Unity's first birthday next week. That's right...celebrating ALL WEEK.

Peace be the journey - cool runnings!

Ta for now, ~ky
