I love U-Unity Stamp Company Paper Piecing Challenge

Hello and happy Sunday! It's cold, wet, and rainy here today and I'm fighting a cold, so I'm enjoying a lazy Sunday in my sweats with a piping cup of coffee and some Pandora. My card today was created for the latest Facebook Unity {Show & Tell} paper piecing challenge. To create my card I started by stamping the Unity Stamp Company's Love Bug stamp onto some kraft cardstock from Hobby Lobby. I stamped the image again onto some patterned paper from the Crate Paper Little Bo Peep 6x6 paper pad and fussy cut the image. I went around the outer edges with my Memento dual tip marker to give it a nice, clean finished look and adhered it directly to the cardstock. I added some dimension and shadowing to the stamped image using my Copic markers and added some white gel pen to the rearview mirror. I stamped the sentiment from the same Unity stamp set onto the license plate bracket using Versafine onyx black ink. To add some additional interest to the card I cut a small strip of patterned paper from the same paper pad and added a decorative border on the top and bottom using an edge die from Stamplorations. I adhered the strip down to the card base and added some decorative hearts die cut from the same paper pad using a Paper Smooches heart die. I rounded the corners of the panel using my We R Memory Keepers corner chomper and adhered it to my A2 white card base. To finish this card off I added some black dashed lines around the outer edge of the card, the hearts, and the decorative strip. Thank you for visiting my blog today, and if you like my card be sure to leave a comment. I read and appreciate them all!
