Misti and Unity Blog Hop

Hi stampers! 
Happy Friday and welcome to the My Sweet Petunia and Unity blog hop. And you are in for a treat. We have so many designers and some wonderful give aways (details towards the bottom of this post)

For my card today I used the new Happy Snail mail set and with the help of the MISTI I did some no line coloring. . I stamped the image on watercolor paper using my MISTI and Tea Dye distress ink,, next I watercolored the image and added some fun background. Stamped the sentiment on vellum with help of the MISTI and the creative corners, then embossed in white. Adhered it all together and adhered the panel onto black card base. 

Watch the video below on how this card came to be.
