Smiles are proof of everyday miracles

Hello Lovelies! 

It's been awhile since I have joined the fun on the Unity Blog for Friends with Flair, so I am popping in today. I also can not believe we are half way through the year already! Seriously, I feel like I was just celebrating on New Year's Eve. 

I started with a kraft card base (Stampin' UP!) and created two panels using the letterpress technique. I used Very Vanilla, so it's inked very subtly.  I added the polk-a-dot patterned paper to the lower potion embellishing with a length of crochet trim and buttons. 
I chose to use a Unity sentiment as my focal image, and I apologize as I do not know what set this is from as I won an assortment of stamps in a prize pack. :-) Lastly, I embellished with some flowers in my stash.
I found further inspiration with these great challenges.
That's all for me today! I hope you have a Fantastic Friday! Don't forget to hop along with Friends with Flair...you could win a prize for just leaving some love.
~Tammy~
