Color Throwdown and Freshly Made

Hi Friends,
I'm playing in a few challenges today. One is the Color Throwdown 403 and I used the Freshly Made Sketch 247 to put this clean and simple card together. 
I had so much trouble getting this card made. Mr. Mojo made me fuss and throw away all kinds of paper trying to come up with a layout for the adorable Simon Says Stamp Unicorn. I got it free as a birthday gift from SSS. 

I'm rusty since I haven't made a card in two weeks. It's so hot but I have been enjoying summer. 

As you can see I sponged a distress ink background on water color paper and added some glitter paper stars and sequins. The inside sentiment says "filled with rainbows and something". Haha. I'm not home so I can't look it up and Google can't find it. 

Some other challenges:
Cardz4Gals -No Patterned Paper
In the Pink Challenge -Rubber or clear stamp and pink
Seize the Birthday -Pink&Brown or Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting today.
