Another card from the Unity KOM  {love & joy for the holidays} Oct 2014.   I used some Golden Modeling Paste inside a stencil cut from Nesties to frame the image of a Thankgsiving meal.  Added some rick rack and scallops cut with a SU Sizzix Tasteful Trim BigZ die.  Added a little ribbon and a ticket stamped with a cute sentiment also from the KOM.  
ink:  SU markers- So Saffron, Cajun Craze, Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip
paper: SU Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, So Saffron
extra:  Liquid applique, SU ribbon, misc flat jewel

Unity Be Inspired Challenge for November

 Decided to follow the colors (even tho they don't speak Christmas to me) and the sketch with a horizontal tilt.  All of the stamps are Unity.  Artistic Brick was stamped in stripes on the background and decorated with snowflakes from the KOM   October 2014 (love & joy for the holidays).  Embossed the snowflakes with SU  cracked glass so a little of that shine peeks out from the edges.  The food and  wine stamp and Eat drink and be merry sentiment are from the same KOM.   Colored the food and wine stamp with a marker so I could leave out the pumpkin.  Then stamped the Itty Bitty Holiday Joy Christmas Tree in it's place.  The holly and Post Card with cancel mark came from a stamp in the  Vintage Christmas Kit.

This is my first Christmas card for 2014 and I wasn't sure at first.  It seemed a little bland even with the SU tinsel wrapped around the corners so I used Stickles for the berries and added the pompoms to the tree. Now it says Merry Christmas.  Unity stamps are so fabulous.
