I think I'll be a Unicorn!

Happy Friday Cottage Cutz fan!  It's Jeanne today with an easy, fun card.  I love this pretty, floral unicorn die and found the perfect sentiment for it in my stash - "Always be yourself (unless you can be a unicorn)".
For this card I started opposite from my usual order of things which is working on the image, then the layout.  I stamped the sentiment in purple ink on a panel of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch lavender cardstock and die cut a circle from mint cardstock using the second largest of the Stitched Circles dies.
Then I freehand cut a curve over the sentiment.
Next I die cut the unicorn from white cardstock.  There are a lot of pieces to this die so I divided them into separate piles for ease in coloring - unicorn pieces, flowers, and leaves.  I opted not to use the stars and moon.

I used Distress Oxide ink to color the mane and just tip the edges of the unicorn.  I left the horn white to be covered later in Wink of Stella.
I took a white A2 panel and adhered the circle unicorn and sentiment panel to it.
I colored my leaves in three shades of green and the flowers in various shades of warm colors.  I just chose whatever seemed to go with the lavender and mint that I had picked.  Then I began to randomly layout and glue the greenery and flowers along the curve that I had cut.  You can see that I had one leaf on the right extend past the panel.  I snipped off the extra when I was through.
I decided to add a few floral elements to the upper right.
My final step was to use several coats of Wink of Stella on the horn and add some rhinestones and pearls interspersed in the flowers and greenery for a little extra sparkle.
