Double D Challenge - Anything with a Rainbow~Unicorn~Mermaid

Do you believe that it is April?  I think that the time is going fast and soon we will be heading back to Wisconsin for the summer.  Yes, I said summer. All of you that have stayed in the north and have had a lot of cold weather and snow may not remember summer. But it is coming. 

In the meantime, while you wait, here is our next challenge at Double D. Diane is the host and this is the inspiration board for you. 
Anything with a Rainbow ~ Unicorn ~ Mermaid

Mermaid is a digi from Tiddly Inks
The palm tree and sun are from GKD, Tropical Skies

Lynda is known as Loopyloo
You can find her blog here. 
Here is my card for you. 

This was done with one sheet of designer paper that I had in my stash. I die-cut some of them with stitched squares and some with plain squares. Then I had fun arranging them on the front of this card. Next, I used the Happy Birthday die from Die Namics cut from gold foil paper. I called it done. 
I can't wait to see what you will do with this challenge.  Please pop over to the blog to see what the other designers have done. You may be surprised.

Make the Cards Challenge #9 Masculine

This is a new challenge for me and I happen to see that the challenge this week was masculine.  Well, I just made a card for my neighbor that will fit and I am entering it this week.  

This card was created with Stampin Up stamp called Whiskey Business.  The sentiment is from the same stamp.  I combined it with an embossing folder that looks like wood.  colored with Copics. 

Don't forget the inside, this set has some great sentiments. 

I am entering this in this weeks Make the Card Challenge #9
