Unity Stamps - Absolutely Priceless

Today, I'm in Madison at "Madison Mingle".  Back in the day, it was an annual Angel gathering, now it is open to everyone. It is a shoebox gathering.   Everyone brings a project with instructions and supplies and we make projects all weekend. This is my project.
The balloon image and flag sentiments are from one stamp set from Unity called Absolutely Priceless. The designer paper is from K and Company.  The cardstock is Bazzill Jacaranda and Everglade, PTI Fine Linen.  The ink is PTI Dark Chocolate.  

I stamped the balloon on fine linen cardstock then cut it out.  I did the same with the sentiment flags.  I layered the patterned paper and everglade cardstock on fine linen cardstock.  Using a ruler and a white signo gel pen I created faux stitching.

The button (blueberry sky) is from PaperTrey Ink as well as the cream button twine.  The button is added to the balloon image with a glue dot.  The balloon is added to the card with pop dots.
