Growing in Unity day 1 -Let love fly

 Today is the first of 5 days that I will be sharing GROWING IN UNITY.  Last week I was thinking UNITY is just what our country really craves. With all the craziness, it is nice to sit down and create art and find a moment of peace. I made a card using Phyllis Harris image:


I water colored the image and then added accents with prisma colored pencils. I took a black pen and added some lines to the butterfly net. A couple of coordinating cardstock mats are all I needed to make this CAS card. This little girl reminded me of my oldest daughter when she was little. She loved bugs. We went butterfly tagging where butterflies were caught and little tags were put on their wings so that their flight pattern could be determined by the conservationists.
 
Make sure you come back to my blog for the next few days to see what I have created using UNITY STAMPS.
If you leave a comment on my cards this week you might have the chance to win some UNITY stamps to enjoy yourself.
