Birthday card

Hi Everyone, another post today as I didn't think the tutorial was a "real" post LOL.

I have made a card for my Great niece, who loves Unicorns.  Seeing as she is now a teen, I thought that I would do something a little more grown up for her.

I found this fab digi by Jade Dragon at Deviant Art. which suited the bill exactly. I coloured in Photoshop as usual, matching the freebie blog hop DP colours by dream4everdesigns at PixelScrapper.  

I layered the image onto DP paper, card to match and used my new toy Mini Perfect Layers rulers to get the right size on each layer, (I LOVE it.)   I added a gold shape with her name and age, wrapped the layers in shiny craft thread, also a freebie with a magazine, years ago, I also threaded a button with it. And added lots of Stickles. Glad she doesn't view my blog, however her Nan does, so NO telling Anne. LOL.

I'm entering the following challenges  Girls Girls Girls - Yep!  Happy Birthday - Yep!  Add a Birthday Sentiment - I hope her age and name count, if not my apologies.  - Yep?
