Happy, Happy, Happy!

Paper Smooches Sparks is having a sketch challenge this week: 

It just so happened I needed a birthday card, and the sketch managed to work its way into my plans quite nicely:

I had started out thinking I would give my unicorn a rainbow mane, but then decided pink and purple would be fun together. I collected "happy" sentiments from two different sets for the sentiment square. I covered some cardstock with washi tape before die cutting the backing mat, and used two more strips of washi behind the unicorn. The mane, tail, hooves and horn are all generously coated with Wink of Stella glitter marker. This closeup maybe shows the shimmer a little better:

Finally, I added the purple sequins to help balance the design.
With less than a month before the big day, this my be the last non-Christmas card you'll see here for a while... 

Supplies: Neenah solar white & Stamping' Up almost amethyst cardstock, Paper Smooches Spectrum, Birthday Buddies & Party Posse stamps, Versafine onyx black, Memento rosebud & Stamping' Up almost amethyst inks, Sharpies, Nellie's Multi-Frames square die, mega dot pink Trendy Tape, sequins, Wink of Stella clear glitter marker

Pin It Now!
