Unity HHH - my first post

My first post for a Unity Hip Hop Hangover.  I hope that I'm "playing" right.......


I actually started this card with Jen Buck's sketch challenge in mind, but dilly-dallied and didn't get the card posted before the deadline.  But that doesn't mean I can't share, right?

I used the "bird sings" stamp from the May KOM and the butterfly from the March KOM.  Further details follow.  For some of the items used I don't know the sources.  I'm trying to use up some of my stash -- trying to be more frugal & decrease my stash (Kristine Werner's "scrap crap").  I'm hoping to get moved out of this apartment into a house before winter and less stuff to move is good, no?

Materials: cardstock: base (Bazzill), kraft (stash--unknown); ink: brown, dune (Colorbox chalk inks), brushed corduroy used on edges (Ranger); ribbon: satin (stash -- Michaels??), multi-colored & threaded thru buttons (EK Success); buttons: (stash -- maybe, Making Memories???); adhesive: (Pioneer mounting tape) & (Mono-multi).

Thanks for taking a look today.
