A Bevy of Butterflies with "Unity"

OK.. did you miss Me.. hehehe I am back with my second post for the day.. I have had this card on my computer for the last few days, but did not get a chance to post it until today!!!. I am soo "Excited about this post because it is my very first card that I made using images from "Unity Stamp Co.".. yeahhhhh . I know every one has seen all the wonderful images that they have to offer, and I have been a follower of theirs for sometime too.. But not until I liked on FB and start following that, more and more of their lovelyness was being seen by me every day.. Not to mention that I got in on some Amazing Sales on lots of their stamps and kits. 
So Here is my "First Card" that I am showing, using one of the most "Beautiful set of Butterflies".
Bevy of Butterflies
I show cased a card the other day where I made a "desk top calender Easel card.. Well I mention that I had purchased a few of them.. So I wanted to make sure that I got them on projects for a few people that I wanted to give them to.

I made this "Desk Top" Calendar/card for one of the Resident at my Job.. She lost her "cat" the other day and  as you can imagine is very "heart" broken over it.. So I wanted to give her something more that just a "Sympathy card". I wanted to give her a little token to brighten  up her spirit and something that she could look at over and over again.. ( And She really LOVED IT TOO.. :0).. She told me that It meant more to her at this time than "I" could imagine"... and that really made my heart Happy"

I have to say that I got this idea and several others like it,  from a great Tutorial on YouTube..Here is the link if you would like to see it for your self. I started with my PTI Card stock and Two Butterflies from the set. I Stamped the images first on my card stock and then "Paper Pieced" them again on some DP from Basic Gray- "Hopscotch"  I used my Nestibalities to cut out the base for my calendar, added a little scrap of DP and added "Scor Tape" to attached it and pop dot to attached it to the card. ( I may have gone a little over board with my "white gel pen".  Sentiment and Swirl is also from the Stamp Set. and added Glitter. The Pearls are some Gorgeous "flat back pearls" that I got from "Pazzazz  Aplenty" if you have not visited then you really should too.
 Here is a Side view of my card soo you can see how I stamped once on just the card stock.

and I thought it would be Gorgeous to Stamp the Envelope too..So I did with my Memento Lady Bug Ink and added more glitter.

This one has NO stamped images, But waned to show another great Idea for your little Calendar.. and Yes I got this from the Same Channel on YouTube.. and Guess what ( you get to download the Calendar for "Free"
