Inkspirational #304 - A Glittery Unicorn for Evelyn

 Here's my DT card for the newest Inkspirational Challenge #304 just posted.  Pia is the Designer to choose the challenge this time - and she wants us to Add Glitter!

A friend asked me to make a card for her 2 year old granddaughter - and I thought what would be better than a shaker Unicorn with glitter cardstock?!

I used this fun Potbellies Unicorn die from Papertrey Ink.
  (unfortunately no longer available - I also have the Penguin, Santa and Reindeer Potbellies!). 
I personalized it with her name and age, and die cut the wings, snout, hair, horn and flowers out of glitter paper.  I added a mix of colorful gems/sequins in the shaker piece.

I die cut another base piece and adhered it to the front so it stands up.

So how will you use glitter on a card?  
We hope you will join us over at Inkspirational and link up your card.
You'll find lots of inspiration from the rest of the DT as well as Mr. Linky at the Inkspirational Blog!

So creative and it even stands. What two-year-old is not going to love a Shaker unicorn! I just adore this, Julia! Thanks for playing along at Seize the Birthday.

This is so clever for a 2 year old. The shaker will really get her attention and that way that you made it stand up for display is awesome. So glad that you joined us at Seize the Birthday Challenge.

Ohmygosh, Julia! Your pot-belly unicorn, all jazzed up with glitter, is absolutely adorable! What a cutie! Perfect for your friend's 2-year-old granddaughter who, I'm sure, loves it. The personalizing with her name and age is such a special touch. Keepsake!!
