Encouragement Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Unicorn Love with Cricut Artbooking and Artiste Cartridges

Hello friends!  How are you doing?  I have been struggling with some health issues; but other than that; all is good.  Just a few days before Thanksgiving. Can you believe it?  Where did this year go?  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post and our topic this week is Anything Goes.  I bought this adorable new Ching-Chou Kuik Unicorn Love as soon as it came out.  I love Unicorns; and this one is just gorgeous!  I hope I did it justice.  I tried my best to make this card special with lots of glitter and sparkle.  It took me several days to get it the way I wanted it.  LOL!  I hope you enjoy my creation.  

I created this for my daughter; who is having some difficult challenges in her life. I want her to know how much I love her and that I will love her and support her; no matter what decisions she makes.  I thought this image was perfect for her.
