A Place To Start - April 2020 Challenge - Use a Ribbon or Bow

Happy April!
Time for a new monthly challenge at A Place To Start! 
We have a sponsor this month
Stamper's Delight
(formerly Scrappers's Delight)
I was so focused on trying to color this unicorn that I forgot to add my bow.  It wasn't until I had everything glued down that I saw my omission.  Technically,  I did not complete the challenge but I did use the sponsor's image so I am sharing the card!
This project presented another opportunity to play around with my Perfect Pearls™.  I wanted to add a little shimmer so after I colored my unicorn, I brushed on a light layer of "Pearl" Perfect Pearls™.  I also applied it to the background panel after I sponged the edges with Distress inks.  Although it is difficult to see in the picture, the card has a soft, satiny sheen that is so pretty IRL!
 If you click on these close-ups, you can see the shimmer!
I used Glossy Accents on her horn and hoves to add just a little more dimension and texture.  I ad a few technical issues with the card but since it is staying with me...I decided not to redo it!  I did, however, go back to shade in the white spaces on her hair.

Thanks so much for stopping by
