Growing in Unity, Day One!

Welcome to my first Growing in Unity post of the week! 
I'm happy to share some Unity love with you all, while giving you a chance to WIN a cool prize! :)
Make sure to come back every day this week and leave a comment on each Growing in Unity post. At the end of the week, one lucky commenter will pick two Unity Itty Bittys!
This adorable stamp is from the June, 2010 Kit of the Month, Fly...Free. I decided to add a little nest, and some texture by giving them a nest made of tiny pieces of felt. I was inspired by the lyrics of the song on the patterned paper along the bottom of the card.
 The paper is one of my all time favs, October Afternoon's Thrift Shop. 
The frame is SU's Crumb Cake. It's made of what was left after die cutting a shape using Nestabilities. I popped it up over the image for dimension. 
A variety of punches were used to make the layers. All of the edges were inked using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper. It's my go-to ink for aging. And of course, I had to add some buttons ;)
I really look forward to sharing Unity with you all week! And don't forget to comment every day for a chance to win:)
