Unity World Record Inspirational BLOG HOP!

Welcome! Today's the day for the Unity World Record Inspirational Blog Hop! If you're a first-time visitor to my blog, thanks for coming! One of my favorite all time quotes is this one:

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we will find it not." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today's card uses Gratitude=Joy from Unity. I inked the image with kiwi kiss ink and rolled the edges in navy, stamped once, then stamped again without re-inking. Sentiment is stamped in basic gray. DP and jumbo eyelets are from Stampin Up, and the rest of the cardstock is kiwi kiss, navy, basic gray and neenah classic crest white.
