Fluffy Unicorn

  Hello, everyone!  Here is a mid-challenge reminder for our "It's Alive" challenge over on the Creative Moments Challenge blog.  You still have almost 2 weeks to play along with us.  We have two sponsors and the image I used today came from Polkadoodles.  Here is my card:

And, oh, boy, did I have fun with this one!!  I found a super fun sketch that let me use a whole bunch of scraps!!  Since I was using this adorable unicorn image, I wanted to use some magical paper scraps and I remembered I have this pack that has a lot of gold foiled accents.  And this pack had a lot of little scraps that were perfect for this sketch.  I pulled out a bunch of the scraps that were big enough, you can see them below:
A lot of them only needed to be trimmed a little and they were perfect!  After I colored the unicorn, I added some gold sparkle pen to the horn, wings, and strands of the tail and mane, you can see it in the photo below:
I finished the card off with some tiny gold die cut stars.

Remember, you still have almost 2 weeks to play.  So, get inky and link up your creation; I can't wait to see what you create!

Stamps: Polkadoodles "I'm a Fluffy Unicorn" digi; CAS-ual Fridays "Be a Unicorn" sentiment
Dies: Stamps of Life star flip die set for the tiny stars
