…if you’ll believe in me, I’ll believe in you

Sharing a sweet first birthday card I made for a colleague’s daughter featuring a cute unicorn from the Uniquely Creative Stay Unique set.

I’m playing along with Fusion’s 5th Anniversary Challenge, I’ve used the sketch for my layout and took the lovely rainbow colours and mostly purple background as inspiration for my colours.  So, I’ve actually taken the fusion route, although with loads of shimmery goodness thrown in.  Made my own rainbow paper and even made my own mica spray to spritz it with.  And how awesome does that Make it Crafty chippie look in purple metallic embossing powder?

Now I did swap out some of the shapes in the sketch, just to make it my own and, well, so I could use that awesome chippie frame.  I have the matching rectangle one but sadly it was too big for the stamp, which is a real stamp so no upsizing in photoshop like with a digi.  To match the stars on the frame I swapped out the circle for a star, which I hand cut.  It would have looked better stacked but one was a trial and a half given I couldn’t find my compass anywhere.

I die cut the 1 and embossed it to match the frame.  With all my embossing and the thickness of the chipboard frame I’ve got a few dimensional elements on this card so I’m entering it in the current challenge at Cardz 4 Galz; this card going out to a sweet little girl.

Over at Sweet Stamping they want to see bright and cheerful designs, which this card is so I’m also linking up over there.
