Birthday Card Using Moonflower Unicorn Maiden With Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  It is very cold here in Southern CA; which is not our normal for this time of year.  We had a very busy Christmas this year; but it was nice.  I hope all of you had a fabulous Christmas this year; and maybe we can all slow down a little bit and relax.  LOL!

Please read - Google has already started removing our followers who do not have a Google log in.  If you are one of them; please sign up for a google account and follow your favorite blogs again; so that you will still continue to receive updates.  I appreciate all of my followers and would love for you stay on my list.  

It's time for another Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge 25 Anything Goes.  I used this beautiful Moonflower Unicorn Maiden digi .   She sure has a lot of long hair.  LOL!  I love unicorns; so this was perfect.  I tried to do something out of my normal; and created using shades of brown.  As most of you know; I usually use soft pastels or bright colors; so this was way outside my comfort zone.

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge. They are Moonflower Digistamps & Michele R Designs.  Check out the post at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge 25 for more details about the prizes.  Please stop by to see all of the gorgeous creations by the DT.
