I was riding shotgun with my hair undone in the front seat of his car....

Hey yall! I hope you're having a wonderful Friday! I have another Unity Inspiration Challenge for you this week. As I was surfing Martha Stewart's website yesterday I stumbled on this gorgeous picture...looks like a summer project for hubby if I ever saw one!! *grin*

The one thing that stuck with me was those little tea lights hanging from the arbor. I tend to focus on one or two details from an inspiration piece and build my project from there, so I took the flowers from Flirty Flowers, inked them up with Stampin' Write Markers, and stamped them onto Vanilla cardstock like little hanging thingies. Then I stamped them a second time on scrap paper, cut out the larger images, and popped them up on pop dots for some dimension.

The circles on the card base are also from the Flirty Flowers kit. There are a ton of images to choose from, and they all work together so well! The sentiment made me smile, so I added that to the bottom.

I also want to take a second to do a SHOUT OUT to the eight (yes, I said EIGHT! WOW!) new Unity Design Team members that were announced yesterday:

Adorable card. I can only see it if I click on it. Otherwise, just a bit of it...not sure if you wanted it this way. I've got to check out Unity. NO YES Ugh. My bank account is hurting and it will be your fault!
