Be a Unicorn in a Field of Horses - Double Trouble Challenge #109

Here is my DT Card for Double Trouble Challenge #109 "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" with a choice to use rainbow colors and/or pink inspirational photo provided by our partner for this challenge Colorful Options. My choice was to use rainbow colors. 


Decided to use a Unicorn stamp because of the sentiment "Be a Unicorn in a Field of Horses"... and thought a Outer Stair Step fun fold card would be perfect for the field of unicorns.

Stamped all the Unicorns, pulled out my Brother Scan N Cut, colored each with rainbow colors and set aside.  Next used several dies to cut the rainbow, clouds and grass, colored using the same colors with some blending and set aside.  

Now for the fun part of fitting in all the pieces so they show nicely when folded or open.  The sentiment was all one stamp, and couldn't decide where it was going to fit; then a lightbulb came on... why not cut the original sentiment stamp to place on the clouds, leaving more space for my Unicorns on the bottom half... perfect.  Spent more time on the placement of the unicorns and the only thing I wished I had done previous to adhering the cut pieces is that I did the sky and grass inking first... next time.  Added shimmer to the rainbow and smaller cloud.

Suzanne, such a fun, fun, fun card! The sentiment is perfect for the card. I like how you created the rainbow on the side-step element. Just a great card all round with the glittery rainbow to top it off!!! -Donna

This is such a fun card - the design is excellent. Love the rainbow colours as well. So many times we wish we had done something different (hindsight is 20/20, right?) but your card turned out looking terrific!
