Uniko Challenge #45 - Something Old, Something New

I'm so pleased you dropped by today as I'm here with details of the first Uniko Challenge for 2018.

And what could be a more fitting theme? And with Valentine's Day coming up soon the twist is going to be so easy to encorporate.

So for my DT card I've used what I think is my first ever stamp set bought from Uniko and the bang up to date new matching die.

I chose some colours inspired by the violas and primulas that are starting to appear in my local shops. I added the flowers to a been in my stash forever die cut heart to encompass the challenge's LOVE twist and used a greeting from the freebie set from the Uniko December new release.

Stamps:Uniko, Flower Power #2, December freebie
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: Uniko Flower Power #2; Xcut, Homespun Heart
Pens: Copic, BV11, BV13, N1, Y18, YR16

So how will you interpret this theme? Do pop over to Uniko to check out how the rest of the DT have been inspired - they'll inspire you back for sure!

Thanks for looking today, it's been fabulous to have you visit my blog.  And keep crafting!
