Challenge #351 at Shopping Our Stash is ~~ Mythical and Magical and it's a two-fer!!!

Another week has flown by and finally our weather is getting nice, we will have a really warm week, the flowers don't look too bad, the crocus are blooming and the daffodils still look healthy.  On with the challenge at Shopping Our Stash which is mythical and magical so dig out those fairies, unicorns or what every you have that fits the theme.  I chose a digital image from Selena Fenech, I have had it for a while and thought it was too intricate to work with but since the deadline was looming I printed it off an coloured it with my copics.

I used soft pink and lavender for the unicorn's mane and tail, soft pink for the dress, layered this on pink pirouette, and popped up with a piece of fun foam. I added a scalloped layer which I used some gold sticker strips from Starform. (these must be 10 years old)

Close up, I added stickles to the flowers and the unicorn's horn as well as a touch on the mane and tail.

finished inside with a scrap of pink and a fern (from my box of die cuts) 

As I said it's a Two-fer and I made a second card just because the Bugaboo image was so darned cute!

As you see I'm still in my lime green mode, I left the blue off this time. This super cute baby troll was a freebie from Bugaboo stamps about three Fridays ago (there is a free image every Friday) I wanted to make him into a shaker card using a Impression Obsession shaker cup (easiest way to make a shaker)  The shaker cups are about two years old although I have smaller ones that are way older than that. 

Just so you can get a closer look at the adorable troll and the $$ store beads.

I cut the HB in black and in lime (a bit of tweaking is in order) I layered the two diecuts for extra dimension. 

I would like to enter this in:

Thanks for stopping by today I hope you enjoyed my two-fer and head over to the Main Blog and check out the rules and see which mythical, magical creature the rest of the design team have used.

Two opposite types of cards, but both equally lovely.
The unicorn one is just so soft and pretty and I love the sparkle you have added on those areas.
As for the baby troll....how cute!! And a shaker card to boot, FUN
