Magical Wishes

Happy Tuesday - hope you are all having a marvelous day... woo hoo - I managed to combine four challenge in this one little old card. Three from Splitcoast Stampers - yesterdays technique - to make a side step card #TLC257, today's colour challenge - Pretty in Pink, Mambo Mellon, Blush Blossom, neutrals of choice - the desert option us red - but only red hearts and the third is Tuesday Teapot challenge - to bring some juicy gossip to Rapunzel's new Beauty Salon - "Classy Castle Cuts" to help bring in lots of new customers. Read HERE for more of the story. Plus this weeks challenge over at Crazy 4 challenges - pretty in pink - make a card of project with a pink theme.

Here is my gossipy story - Little unicornia "Sweety Bell" has heard that Derek the Dragon has a huge chore ahead of him. He is to fly in hundreds or is that 42,000 gossipy teapotters to Rapunzel's new beauty salon... and psssst... I have heard that Sweety Bell has a SECRET CRUSH on handsome Derek the Dragon. The plan is for Sweety Bell to see if she and all her flying unicornia and pony friends can help Derek out... maybe take notice of her NOW.. Plus
she'll ask her pony friends if they'll get their manes and tales washed, dyed and curled at Rapunzel's new salon....

I really enjoyed making this side step card... Will definitely try this again. I cut out the base card from textured Mellon card stock. There is a picture on Splitcoast Stampers technique challenge TLC257 with instruction on how to make the side step card. Next I cut pieces of the card stock to fit each panel. Stamped the little heart flowers and butterflies on pretty in pink. Coloured image. Cut out the Mellon scalloped edge. Glued down each panel. Stamped sentiment on blush blossom. Cut out with window punch, plus one in pretty in pink and Mellon. Pierced hole and attached with pink brad. Tied on pink ribbon bow. Stamped the pony (from Stampin Up - Pony Party- set) onto whisper white. Used stamp a ma jig to add the wings and unicorn to the pony. Stamped on the hearts. Coloured pony with markers and pencil crayons. Clear embossed her eye, unicorn and hooves. Added Diamond stickles to her wings, hearts, tail and mane, plus the little red flowers and pink brad. I added the row of pink pearls to the larger stair step panel.
