A Magical Unicorn Birthday

I always see things (dies, stamps, inks) that I want.   And then I purchase them.  They arrive, I put them in a drawer for another day - and often forget to get them out and use them.

Case in point -  the wonderful Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel dies and stamps and the Neat & Tangled Magical Day stamps and dies which I purchased months ago thinking I'd use them to make a card for my unicorn-loving youngest grand niece.
So yesterday was the day I got them out -  inspired by two challenges.

And here is the fun card I made for Madelyn -  who will be 5 in April 
(shhh - don't tell her about the card!)

I personalized the top of her card using my Brother Label Maker.   
And the birthday sentiment stamp really says "wishing you a wonderful birthday", but I only inked the Wishing You A and the Birthday and then stamped the MAGICAL in the space that happened to be just big enough!

I took 4 pictures to show you the 4 words from the sentiment set that I stamped on the wheel so you see each one as you turn the wheel.    FABULOUS  AMAZING  AWESOME  MAGICAL
I colored the unicorn using Tombow Markers pushing the color around the area with a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella -  below you can hopefully see the wonderful glittery shine!  
Jennifer McGuire has a YouTube Video on this coloring technique here.

My inspiration from the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge was this unicorn from the web store Accessorize

I wish I could say that I don't do exactly the same as you - lol.

Madelyn's card is beautiful, I love the circular slider idea and I bet she is absolutely delighted when her birthday comes round! Hugs, Anne xx
