This card is for this week's challenge for Less is More, which is to use the colour yellow.
I have to give credit for the sun idea to Emma Williams, who is one of Barbara Gray's talented team of designers. I saw it done on one of her Create and Craft samples, and stored the thought away for future use. It is just a case of dividing up a semicircle into segments and sponging different shades into each one. I used one of the Big and Juicy ink pads, the Soothing Sunset one, and sponged direct on to the plain white card.
The glorious unicorn is from the Dufex range, and is one of a set of decoupage. I just used the second layer as I wanted it to stay simple. Sadly, a plain photo does not really do the unicorn justice as it catches the light beautifully. I am very fussy about unicorns and they have to be good models of a horse before adding the horn. This one is not too bad from that point of view.
The sentiment is my one and only "Happy Birthday" stamp, and that again was stamped using the Soothing Sunset, covering two separate sections of colour to shade it slightly.
