I Believe In You


I love ColourQ's bold colour palette this week and decided it would be perfect to use with these stamps from Unity's August 2011 Kit of the Month - What I Know.  I think the flower/text stamp is going to get a lot of love - it's awesome!  Since I'm workin' the Unity stamps I'm also going to enter this in this week's All Things Unity challenge - Anything Goes.  

Thanks to those who have expressed concern about me getting battered by Hurricane Irene. However, Bermuda is in the Atlantic about 600 miles off Cape Hatteras so unless Irene does a major right turn we should be just fine.  Hope all of you on the East Coast are battened down and ready!  Be safe.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Bazzill Basics, (Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Island Indigo)  Stampin' Up 
Stamps: (Image & sentiment from What I Know - Aug 2011 KOM) Unity Stamp Co
Ink: (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Island Indigo) Stampin' Up
Gems:  Doodlebug

Fun, bold, and utterly awesome. Love your card. Sorry if I got so many other people worried about your with my lack of geography knowledge.

Oh this is beautiful...love how you popped the flowers up a bit...and the layered banner is fabulous.

Brilliant card Jen, the blocks of colour look great and the raised flowers just add that little bit of texture :)
I would have been worried too had I not googled Bermuda the other day...you're quite far out in the big pond aren't you?
Have a great weekend :)
