Color Me Pretty

Hello and happy Friday!  Woot!  I hope you had a good week and have an even better weekend planned. :)

Speaking of weekends, my daughter and I are going to a birthday party for a 6 year old.  This is a dance party complete with tutus.  Should be fun.  So, I made today's card for that birthday girl. Seriously, what girl doesn't love to dream about unicorns and rainbows?!

I plan to make another just like it for Emma's card drive.  Just a reminder...we have a blog hop and card drive going on for her right now, you can check my link here or start at the beginning of the hop at Amy's blog. There are prizes up for grabs for hoppers AND for those that participate in the card drive.  So won't you come join us?  You have until March 24th.

Meanwhile, I wanted to tell you just a little bit about this card.  Remember my faux watercolor tutorial using tissue paper?  Well this is my second card using tissue.  I simply crumpled it up a bit, sort of accordion style but it doesn't have to be perfect and applied it from the bottom layer up.  The washi from MME is the perfect accent on top.  I stamped the sweet, sweet unicorn from the new Paper Smooches Spectrum set.  I then used colored pencils, which translated better than I thought they would onto the kraft paper.  I am super happy with the result.

Today's Question of the Day is- Besides using it for gift wrap, when was the last time you used tissue paper and what for?

Entering this into:
