Unity Hip Hop Challenges

WOW! It has been WAY too long since I posted. I've been making a few cards, but frustrated with the upload process. BUT, today, things are going to change....even if just for today! Here is a card I made using some Unity stamps I've been collecting.
The first challenge was to use a black and white background. The second challenge was to not use any squares on the card....thus, I stuck to circles and ovals! Now, I probably have plenty of papers that would have worked as a background, but I chose to create a background from the circles stamp in my "The Good Times" stamp set from Unity. I stamped this onto black paper using Whisper White Craft ink. Then I stamped the verse on white with black ink. I cut and embossed with the oval scallop Nestabilites. Then I decided to add the CB With Love embossing border with the dots to the white card base. I found this cheap ribbon in a stash that worked nicely with the image and background. To add a little sparkle, I used a glitter pen on selected areas of the background and around the embossing on the verse image. This should be a nice general purpose card to send sometime.
