GIU - Growing In Unity Gal Friday

Is it really Friday already? I have been featuring stamps from Unity Stamp Company on this blog each day this week.

I acquired the cupcake and sentiment stamps for this card separately. I love cupcakes, so that one was in my collection. The sentiment, "Happy 29th Birthday AGAIN!", was a joke at our house. Usually, it's the ladies who hide their ages. My husband, however, decided that he wasn't going to turn 30 either. We're both 29 with over a decade of experience, but who's counting, right?
     
  
  
I decided to share two photos of this card with you. I had a very difficult time getting the beautiful gold foil balloons on this card to show their shine. On the photo above, they look green and black. I see this often in magazines, too, where special things like glitter, gloss, sequins and foil just don't show up like they do in person.

TIP:  Did you know that Unity has sentiments like the one used in today's card for ridiculously low prices?  There have a wonderful variety of single sentiment stamps that have a regular price of under $3.00.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!  Happy Stamping!

Orange, a great and happy color! This card is amazing! Great for all ages; of course I would use another sentiment for a younger recipient. Love the foil balloons and the cupcake stamp is classic and sophisticated (can one say that about a cupcake?). All 5 of your cards are fabulous. So glad you shared this with us.
