Believe in Yourself.....Unity & Paper Issues Blog Hop

Hi ladies!
So glad to be here today as part of the Paper Issues and Unity Stamp Co Blog Hop!!!
The theme we are all being inspired by today is "Believe in Yourself" for Breast Cancer Awareness week. 
Paper Issues has put together a gorgeous kit over in their Etsy store for any of you that have fallen in love with the supplies used in the projects posted today. And its only $14! So be sure to stop by and check that out...PLUS Paper Issues has been so generous - use the coupon code: UNITY to get 20% off EVERYTHING in their entire Etsy store.

And of course, be sure to stop and check out all the great and wonderful promos over at Unity Stamp Co too!

Okay, so onto my project....almost...
I am sad to say that Canada Post has not co-operated with our plans...so my fantastic Paper Issues kit has not yet arrived. But I promise when it comes I will create something wonderful with it and I will post it then. So this means that I had to get "creative" with my own supplies to try and keep my color scheme consistent with the other ladies projects. I love those kinds of challenges, actually...so it was fun to dig through my stash and see what I could come up with.

So here is the card I created for you.....

I layered the sentiment right over the the bird image and I love how it turned out....kinda created my own little embelly for my card. 
This photo is at a bit of a different angle so that you can see all my layers....I truly do go through WAY too much foam adhesive...haha!
Supplies Used: Bazzil Cardstock; My Mind's Eye - Love Me 6X6 Pad; Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe Collection - Fabrics; Crate Paper Random Collection - Textile; Jillibean Soup Alphabeans - Grilled Gray; Jenni Bowlin Ink - Chewing Gum & Weather Vane; My Mind's Eye Buttons & Pins - Miss Caroline Collection -  Dolled Up "Day" & Dilly Dally "Best"; EK Success Heart Punch & Scallop Edge Punch; Nestibilities - Classic Circles; Misc - Ribbon, Twine, Photo Corners & Paper Doily

I used this gorgeous Itty Bitty stamp from Unity Stamp Co:
