All Things Unity Challenge

I have a little "fall" card to share with you today (just forget that it is 90 degrees here in Indiana today).  I'm using this card for the All Things Unity Challenge.  The challenge is to find your "style" as outlined  in a special edition of PaperCrafts magazine.  I love to create cards in all the styles but when I picked out some of my favorite cards I realized that they matched the Shabby Chic style best.  I love to tear paper, stamp, and ink up the edges!  This card is typical of my style.  Here are the details of supplies used.
DP:  October Afternoon "Fly a Kite", Flower: KaiserCraft, Vintage Button: Jenni Bowlin, twine: household, Kraft envelope: Maya Road, Inks: Unity Burnt Umber, Ranger Distress Ink for leaves in "Spiced Marmalade", PaperTrey Ink "Chai" for distressing the edges of paper.  And best of all, the stamps:
Unity: Harvest of Memories and Ippity: Fall for You!
I have to tell you that I am falling for Unity/Ippity stamps!  Love the fall themes and oh so perfect for my style of Shabby Chic!  Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully the weather will be turning fall like soon!
