Be-You-Tiful

Today's card was created for the latest Addicted To CAS challenge. The challenge is to use a favorite stamp. I always struggle with clean card challenges because I just love layers and patterned paper. But as soon as I saw the challenge was to use a favorite stamp I knew I had to try and create something clean and simple. I'm a bit addicted to the newest planner gal stamps from Unity Stamp Company and the Be A Beauty stamp set is my absolute favorite and I've used it more times than I can count since I bought it two months ago. I started with a simple green layer of cardstock in a bright, primary green color that I embossed using a Cricut swiss dot embossing folder and adhered directly to my white card base. I then stamped the pretty Unity planner gal image onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set directly above it and then die cut the image using a Gina Marie Designs decorative edge oval die. I colored the image using my Copic markers and then finished the card off by adding some glitter to the sentiment and the flowers in her hair using a Sakura Gelly Roll clear glitter pen. I love how it turned out! I hope you like it too and thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hi I used to make cards for operation write home. Do you know if there is a similar organization I could be part of or send cards to? Thanks

I am not sure of any organized group but Facebook has lots of card making groups and I'm sure there are individuals who would know of a group who does that
I would check there.
