Growing in Unity - Day Three

Hi all! I have another card for you today -- one that's pretty quick and simple, but is still, well, fabulous! Check it:


The stylish lady, animal-print background, and the "you're so" sentiment are all from the March KOM, Just You.  The "fabulous" is selectively inked from the awesome Coco Chanel sentiment in Undeniably You.

The card is an exercise in making myself use a stamp I have a hard time reconciling with my style -- in this case, that leopardy bit in the background. I admit wussing out a bit and keeping it subtle, but it does make a nice frame for my fabulous lady, no? I'm ok with that.

Speaking of Ms. Fabulous, she's colored very (very) simply with Copics -- simple Copic coloring is all I'm capable of!


I gave her some pearl accessories (pearls from SU), and popped her up for a bit of (mailable) dimension. If you'd like another take on this stylish chica and the leopard print, check out this post on Kasia's blog -- so cute!

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post and all the Growing In Unity posts this week for your chance to win a stamp set from this crazy-good list:

See you with another layout tomorrow -- have a great day!

So posh as Kasia said! I'm intimidated by animal prints myself, but I love the look you created. Thanks for sharing!

Great colouring and layout, Ang! I love how you outlined the lady, something I always forget to do. I'm not an animal print fan either but I love how it looks here!
