Happy Anniverary Unity!!!

Last week Unity Celebrated their 2nd anniversary.  There were tons of games and challenges.
Of course I participted!!! Here they are
Challenge #1 - The Martini Sketch 
And my take on this wonderful sketch.... 

Challenge #2- Unity is going to the birds.... 
create a new project using a bird or tree image!
My take on this challenge...
I used my new Unity/Cosmo Cricket set, Garden Variety. I also used the Garden Variety paper.  The flower is the Tim Holtz Sizzix die and the flowers are from Michael's. 

Challenge #3 - LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! - use your first Unity set!
My first set is Eco Chic... and here is what I created! 
I also incorporated the color challege with a twist... 
colors were Orange, Green and Yellow - the twist CAS! 

Challenge # 4 - The Triple Take Challenge!

The concept of this challenge is:
  • given sketch
  • 4 patterned papers
  • a button or bling embellishment

This was a fun Challenge.... and here is what I made

I used my April KOM and Cosmo Paper.. Which I am in LOVE with.. and a 1"x1" inchie. I also used my chalk inks and distress inks. My buttons are from my lot that consist of all different brands. 

Another Challenge was from Maren's blog!
She is AMAZING!! I love her work! 
Her challenge....
Make a card, layout or project inspired by something in your Paper Crafts publication.
Since I am a subscriber to Paper Crafts magazine and have purchased a number of the special magazines I had no problem finding inspiration. 
I used one of Maren's own creations from page 29 of the Card Creations - Start to Finish issue
Here is my card...
Again I used my Unity/Cosmo Garden Variety stamps and I used the garden variety paper! I colored in the tomato with my copics and distressed the edges with some Tim Holtz inks.  My ribbon is by Martha Stewart. 

One last Challenge is the Hip Hop #5 Sketch Challenge
And my take on this challenge is...
Well that would be a WRAP!!! I hope you like my cards and I hope they win a thing or two, too! 

Have a great week!
