Unity Be Inspired Challenge

Hello my friends.

My dear husband will turn 4+3 soon and we will go out to celebrate with friends.

It is something simple and it has to be low budget, so guess what?  Creativity on!
The celebration will be held in a wine related place (of course!!!) so I wanted to make a cake topper with that theme.

I made this using Unity's Be Inspired challenge inspiration.  Not only the color challenge, but the card sketch, helped me with this.

I used several stamps from Unity.  The little bottles in the green cardstock, the numbers 4 and 3, the bottle and the wine glass...  This last one particularly was part of a stamp with a background but I cut it to use only the glass.   I poured (painted) some wine in the glass and added glossy accents.  Also painted and stained a little bit the white circle to add some unity to the whole piece.
For the banner, using the same stamped numbers as stencils, made some extra flags and used the same wood sticks to hang them.

In this next picture you can see I added sticks so I can place in the cake, and also to provide stability to the whole creation.

Here's the inspiration challenge information.  Click in the image... Still can participate yourself!

 Tks for stopping by and for your comments.
