Texture Challenge

All Things Unity ATU has a contest called "Get Felt Up".  It involves Unity Stamps & any product with texture.  I decided to scrap my boy's Christmas photo. It's hard to work on such a theme in May, but I have lots of winter things to catch up on. 

I'm new to Unity, and now testing the waters of stamping on scrapbook pages with it.   I dove right in with the red pattern stamped on white cardstock!  Using my only set called "Material Girl", I stamped some flowers. 

The edges were sponged with Spring Iris CTMH ink pad.  Delphinium Blue Flower Soft was added to the inner portion of my blooms.   I made a starbust punch of red cardstock & added stickles to that.  Red gem brads secured it all together.  The white leaves were found at Ben Franklin in the wedding section!  I think they're used in veils or on cakes.

My sister mailed me some red glitter ribbon, that I wondered if I'd EVER use.  It worked into this layout perfectly.  I love using flowers, glitter & gems on boy pages...whenever I feel like it.  You only live once, right?  Use what makes YOU happy!  That's my motto.
