Special day!

Today is a special day for me as it is my first DT post over at One Stitch at a Time (Big smile on my face!!) and I have been able to join in with a very special charity challenge to help people coping with Autism. Check out the prize list at the end of this post.....

One Stitch At A Time are challenging you to make a special "Rainbow Themed" card - Anything goes type of challenge, but must have a rainbow or the colors of a rainbow in your creation. The reason for this Rainbow challenge is in honor of a very special little guy named Cameron. You can read his story here
Here's a little history and the reason for this Super Challenge this week..

".A very very good friend of Stitchy's who is known in the digital world by the name "FUNKY" , has built a beautiful fundraiser blog for her grandson Cameron..He is autistic and Funky and her daughter are striving to help Cameron..Some of you may know Funky, she has been in the digital scrapping world for a very long time. If you could find it in your heart to help Funky and her little guy out, it will not go unrewarded. We know times are very hard for everyone right now, so if you can't give even a dollar, please don't feel bad, but please do go and read his story, he's quite a character lol..Thank you in advance to all that take part in this very special challenge - have fun & good luck!!! "

So here's my effort!!

I was thrilled to bits when I found out that I was going to use this fabulous unicorn image by Eiglas, isn't it lovely. At first I thought of doing a card but eventually I settled on a wall hanging which I think would look lovely in a little girls bedroom. I must apologise for the poor picture quality but my own point and shoot camera has died (sniff sniff) and by the time I got my husbands SLR beastie to co operate the light was rubbish and the sheen on the pearlescent card was causing problems. The image is coloured with a combination of Sakura glitter pens and promarkers, the backing paper is from Craftwork cards and the ribbons and brads are from a stash raid!!

I'd also like to enter this into the following challenges:

Paper Pretties: Use brads or eyelets

Fab n Funky: What'eva
