Unicorn Sparkle Card

Little things make me happy like discovering a new (to ME) stamp company.   It is one of the companies at Lea's Crafty Comeback Party for Day 12 on her blog....Lea Lawson Creates.  The company is The Ink Road.  Where have I been?  Wink.  I am known by friends and family for my "snarky" wit (My daughter gave me a shirt for my birthday which reads...."If Only Sarcasm Burned Calories.")  So when I saw The Ink Road's designs I felt like they were designed for ME!  ;)  I have my eye on several of their sets!  When I actually read Lea's post for day twelve, I got even more excited because I have the chance to win some of their stamps.  A chance at winning is always a good thing because I am a "poor" college mom (here is where you feel sorry for me since my youngest is in college and gets most of our money....wink).    One of the ways to win is post a non-holiday card.  Using The Ink Road stamps is encouraged but if you don't have any then you can use another company's.  I don't have any YET so I created with what I have.  Lea's unicorn card  inspired me to get out a new unicorn set by Newton's Nook.  I also found out The Ink Road has a color challenge and I'm playing there.  It was definitely a challenge too!  I have NEVER used these five colors together on a card: navy, magenta, rust (this is the color which gave me the most trouble using with the other colors), gray and light aqua.  Here is where my unicorn will be sparkling:
