Hope Your Day Sparkles and Shines

Another variation on the Make It Monday #173: No Outline Watercolor and Simon Says Embossed though technically it's the backside of the impressed so it's debossed? The mat is Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, the card base is Hibiscus Burst. The stamp set is Simply Magical from Taylored Expressions (I changed the cherry to a heart for the cupcake with paint). And because I stamped the cupcake and the unicorn in Antique Linen Distress Ink, I used a marker on the features to make them stand out. The embossing is done with the large impression plate from Papertrey Ink's Make It Market kit: Luxe Letterpress.

If you look hard at the unicorn and cuppie,  you will see they sparkle (thanks to macro pearl Pearl Ex). The sentiment is nearly obscured by sparkle in real life thanks to Stampendous Crystal Embossing Powder, but not so much in the picture. 

I made the caption by stamping the sentiment, painting a bubble around it and then cutting it out with a pair of scissors.
