your unicorn has arrived

Hi everyone! A very Happy Tuesday to you! I have some great news to share – I was personally recruited by the owner of The Outlawz Challenges to join the Tuesday Color Challenge DT! I’m elated – I love playing in all their challenges so why not throw in some inspiration while I’m at it?! The Outlawz Challenges has been running a DT Call and I had not applied because I really wasn’t looking to get on any additional challenge teams, but I just couldn’t resist Laurian’s invite, so here I am! A new ‘5 Colors Plus Twist’ challenge has started today over at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge and our sponsor is Polkadoodles so come on over and play! I was in the mood for a shaped card so I grabbed the adorable Polkadoodles Octavia Moonfly Unicorn digital image (part of a big kahuna download bundle) from my stash and created a sweet hybrid birthday card.

For the 5 Colors Plus Twist challenge this fortnight, we are to use at least three of the five colors shown in the photo below with a twist of adding a doily. I used pink, teal and purple.

I printed the precolored image on 60# Hammermill copy paper, cut it with a stitched mini scallop die, and layered it on a teal stitched oval die cut. I stamped the sentiment in black StazOn ink and set it aside to dry thoroughly. I cut the shaped card base from Neenah Solar White along with a pink shaped layer. I adhered two narrow silver glitter cardstock strips vertically down the center of the card front with a narrow purple strip between them. I added a purple tie-dyed doily which I cut in half and then adhered the layered focal image. I added iridescent gemstones for a little interest.

I adhered a pink shaped layer to the inside of the card base, then a slightly smaller white shaped layer embellished with teal and silver glitter cardstock strips and a sentiment stamped in purple ink.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! Such a pretty color palette we were given to work with!
