For The Love Of Unity Day Two - It's My Party

Happy Monday!!!  It's day two of my Unity Stamps week, and today I've got a fun birthday card using a new favorite of mine, Margaret Girl.  This was one of those cards that started out as something completely different than I intended it to.  I originally was going to make her dress pink, but then I thought no I wanna do something different.  These are brand new metallic pencils that I just got, and when I started to blend the blue colors, it looked just like denim.  And I leaned back, looked at the image and was like OMG Justin and Britney!!  If you remember, Justin and Britney wore matching. Denim. Outfits. to the 2001 VMAs!!!  When I saw how this card was forming, I'd already colored her hair dark or I would've made her a blonde!   The irony of this is that the 2018 VMAs are tonight.  (I wouldn't watch them if you paid me because music today is abysmal, but still, it's ironic.)

SURPRISE!!!  I'm an easel card!!!

Some challenges for this awesome card:

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!!
