Rainbows, Unicorns, Glitter, and a Shaker!

I'm super excited to be joining some challenges today!  Between starting a new job, kids on summer break, and weekend camping trips, I've not had much of a chance to play along lately.  The MFT sketch challenge gave me the starting point, and Virginia's View gave me the extra boost I needed to put this card together.
I rotated the sketch a quarter turn to the left.  The images were stamped, colored with Copics, and given a bit of shimmer.  I patterned the unicorn after the one from Despicable Me - He's so FLUFFY!  The clouds were ink blended with Distress Ink using the cloud die cuts as a stencil.  I die cut the inked clouds with the circle frame to create a shaker.  The rainbow was created using the straw die and spaced a straw width apart.  The bottom cloud was ink blended and the middle portion is raised with fun foam.  The sentiment was inked in DI Picked Raspberry to reflect the unicorn.

Supplies Used:
Copics - C00, C01, C03, Y23, Y26, RV000, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06, RV63, RV66
Stamps - MFT Magical Unicorns
Dies - MFT Stitched Cloud Edges, MFT Pierced Circle Frame, MFT LLD Cool Cup (straw for the rainbow stripes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, DI Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet
Paper - AC Glitter Paper, Paper Studios card base, scraps of colored cs
Extras - Wink of Stella, fun foam, seed beads from Hobby Lobby, acetate from packaging

This card is going over to play in the following challenges:
