Birthday Wishes and Eskimo Kisses

This is the second card I have made for Sophie's birthday and I think this will be the one I give her.
She is having a Star Bright (I think its called) party, the theme pony with wings or Unicorns.

I have coloured the Unicorn with copics, die cut and added to the card front with dimensional foam.
Part on the card and part on the acetate. I wanted to add the rainbow coloured background I had made as well but didnt want the card to look too busy.

I decided to cut off part of the front of the card and replace with an acetate panel that I was able to attach with tape along the length of the card so you cant see the join. I used Bobunny Clear Glitter paste on the stencils raindrops.

The raindrops I made by blending with Distress inks going in the Rainbow colours.
Once finished I added the BoBunny Glitter paste, removed the stencil and let it dry.
I love it, its so sparkly and bright and looks just right on the inside of the card but
showing through the acetate. Added the silver mirror cardstock diecut 'Birthday wishes'.

Hard to photograph well but I think you got the idea.
The title comes from the fact that Sophie and I share, kisses, Eskimo kisses and Butterfly kisses so I am sure she will understand the sentiment inside
Birthday Wishes & Eskimo Kisses.


This is my first time entering this challenge and they
are celebrating their 2 year anniversary.

I have used Stamplorations Droplets stencil.

Thank you so much for coming to have a look and I hope you come again soon.
