CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

And this is the card I created using one of their sets:
 I picked up this set back before Christmas and I've been waiting to have a chance to use it.  This was the perfect opportunity.  Unicorns are magical and must have sparkle and shine to go along with them, right?  So, I chose some gold foil striped paper for the background!  Also, the pink paper has some gold foiling on it as well.  I colored the unicorn and then added black Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the main and tail and added gold Spectrum Noir sparkle to the hooves and horn.  You can see more of the shine and glitter in the photo below:
I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder on the black card stock.  My daughter thought I should use this one; and it does fit since I am often late sending my cards!  I finished everything off with some hot pink sequins.

Make sure you check out the blog hop; you could win some fabulous prizes!!
