GIU Day 5, wonderful mess

It's the 5th and final day of my Growing in Unity week!
 I posted 5 projects this week using Unity Stamps. And you can be 1 of 2 winners to win a bag of 25 stamps from Unity! Just comment on my posts for your entry every day.
Since I am posting a couple days late I will give you through Monday to leave comments and draw the winners Tuesday.

Today I have a paperboard letter I picked up at the craft store and decorated for my craft room. It started out a kraft color. I painted it a poppy red color. I stamped parts of the Up Against a Wall brick stamp. And then distressed with a few gelatos.

The sentiment is from the You Are Important stamp set.
The leaves are from the Wildflowers & Wings set.


I finished it off with a Prima flower and yellow twine.

Thanks for visiting my blog this week! Come back on Tuesday when I announce the winner. And thanks to Unity for sponsoring Growing in Unity!

Wow! I can't believe you fussy cut those leaves for your gorgeous project. I would never have been able to do that without losing at least half of them. This is so beautiful and has a nice autumn feel.
Thanks for a week of awesome inspiration.

It looks real cool having a brick pattern in the background, along with girly flowers and leaves. NICE combo.
