July KOTM Guest designer cards

Unity is doing another contest to see who will be the guest designer for July - what a great idea! Love having these challenges once a month too!

This month - the challenge was to make a monochromatic card. I can do those! The challenge can be found on SCS in the Unity forum - it closed this morning at 9 EST and the winner should be announced soon.

Both cards were made with the May KOTM - this kit with the journaling blocks has to be my favorite so far! LOVE it! The stamps are huge and a great deal - $29 (including shipping) for a TON of BIG stamps.. perfect for me!

The purple one needed something else -but I couldn't find any purple dp - will have to change that as soon as I place another order somewhere! I can't believe I don't have purple dp! I absolutely love this second card. The images are so fun and whimsical this month (and the June kit is amazing too!). I used some SU dp from 2006 for this card and put it with some purely pomegranate paper that I still had.

Carla - the challenge was on SCS for the July KOTM guest designer - they are doing the challenges at the beginning of each month for a guest designer position.

Oh man I LOVE the flowery background on the red one. That is my new favorite design!

oooo these are both super - in 2 different ways! I'd be hard pressed to make a choice.

Just beautiful!
