Believe in Magic

I'm back again with another card for the challenge over at 613 Avenue Create!  This week our twist on the Anything Goes Challenge, is to create your own challenge using the table I've marked below.

The wonderful sponsor that I was able to work with this week is Bugaboo Stamps.

I was using the "Unicorn" image from Bugaboo.  I used my Distress Markers to watercolor the image.  Then I used Stickles (both in clear and gold) to add some sparkle to the unicorn's horn and hooves.  I little bit of Glossy Accents was added to the eye for some depth and shine.  I topped the flowers in the image with some I punched our of scrap cardstock, and added some buttons from my stash to the centers.

I prepped some patterned papers from my stash in a couple ways.  The floral paper had a design added to it using a stencil I have (it was a cheap set of various patterns from Walmart), and some glitter embossing paste.  I used a Stampabilities stamp and Versamark to stamp on the blue dot paper, and then heat embossed the panel with some gold embossing powder.  I backed the panels with a piece of solid aqua card stock and some pearlized gold paper.  I also added a bit of satin ribbon from my stash.  Then I added the panels to my square card base.

I stamped the sentiment (for both the inside and outside) in Versamark and again heat embossed them in gold.  I cut a fishtail on the paper strips, and I added a few tiny gemstones for some bling.

Be sure to stop in over at 613 Avenue Create for the creations by my amazing teamies!
