Unity FWF 7/29 - You make my heart go BOOM!

So two weeks ago I read over the classifieds for rummage sales in our town and spied a very promising cardmaking/scrapbooking only sale. It was about 10 miles away and I drove out in the country (with my two little girls, mind you) looking for this sale, only to find the house and realize it was for the NEXT weekend. DOH!!!!!! So last Friday I drove us again out into the middle of nowhere (we live in a very rural area) to find a FAB rummage sale.

The best find? This:
























It's Unity's 'you make my heart go BOOM' and it was brand new in the package for $2!!!! I shrieked a little. Ooops.
I got the hemp twine at that sale, too, for only 25 cents for a new spool. :) It's not my fave as it's really stiff - anyone know if I can soften it up a bit?

The card's pretty simple... I embossed the green with my CB swiss dots folder and stitched it. I added a random pink buttom from my stash and colored the stamp with Prisma pencils.

Be sure to check back at the Unity blog to see everyone else's fabulous projects... I know I am always inspired!! Plus there are cool prizes to be had. :)
