Paper Players: Sparkling New Year

Okay, so in years past I haven't usually posted on Sundays, but for 2022 I will be because I'm a guest designer for The Paper Players this year!  I am so very honored to be joining this fabulous group of artists for the next year.  So here's the kickoff challenge for 2022:

And here's my card:

You say sparkle, I say unicorn, so I found this stamp from The Greeting Farm and dug in my stash for a variety of colored glimmer paper.  I showed this card to my husband and told him I had to make a card with sparkles; he said clearly I did not understand the challenge brief because the unicorn herself isn't sparkly.  But she IS because she's stamped on Shimmery White cardstock and I added some Wink of Stella to her horn, haha!  Here's what the card looked like when I tried to take a picture with flash:

So, does my card sparkle enough?  Upload your own sparkling creation at the Paper Players blog, can't wait to see what you create!

Christy, what a gorgeous card to kick off our GD stint! If I look up sparkle in the Oxford English Dictionary there would be this card to describe it!! I just love those glittery panels with your unicorn mane in matching colors. Absolutely fabulous!
