Happy Unicorns

Can we talk about adulting just for a minute? I have just scrubbed my whole bathroom from top to toe, including the most disgusting task in the house - removing the hairs from the shower drain. The smell, the soapy build-up... blargh! I feel so good now that my bathroom is shining, and I know having a clean bathroom is its own reward, but sometimes I just wish someone would give me a hug and tell me what a great job I've done. So if you feel like you have been doing some adulting lately that you haven't been acknowledged for, just let me know and I'm more than happy to tell you what a great job you have done, as you truly deserve it.

Today's cards are for twin baby girls. I wanted to make something cute and colourful, and the idea developed from the watercoloured backgrounds. First, I created two watercolour backgrounds using Distress Ink and die cut the rainbows and painted them with Distress Inks too. I stamped the cutie unicorn and watercoloured with Distress Inks. Last, I die cut the clouds from a shimmery white card, and the letters from silver glitter card. 

I'm linking up with Just Us Girls and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Anything goes this week.
