The New Unity Stamps Challenge - Hearts

Happy Monday! What? Monday can be happy... at least this one is, as I have time for crafting!
And welcome to my two new followers, it's great to have you!

One of my favourite stamp companies Unity Stamps has a new monthly challenge. The theme for the first month is 'Hearts' and the only other rule is to use only Unity and Ippity stamps.

Here's what I made:

The lovely heart stamps are from Ippity Moon Beam & Heart Strings set, and the birthday sentiment is from January's Unity Kit of The Month. I actually had a birthday card to make so that's why I've chosen that sentiment.

I stamped the hearts and sentiment with Coffee Bean Brilliance Ink on kraft cardstock and embossed them with a clear embossing powder. Some are coloured with Promarkers. I've added some Tim Holtz tissue tape and wrapped some jute twine around the card, too, and added a pink button. The brown backing paper is from a My Mind's Eye Christmas pack!

Hope you're having a good start to your week too, whatever you're doing.
