Frappe Drinking Unicorn

     Unicorns are fabled creatures, rarely seen by humans.  But there's a reason for that which has only recently come to light.  Unicorns are all but addicted to frappe!  No, you say, but really, it's true!  They have always loved the drink and the reason they were so hard for humans to find is that they were all hanging out in the hidden unicorn frappe bars, drinking themselves silly.

     With the advent of specialty coffee shops spreading through human cities, a huge number of which have "drive-thru" lanes, unicorns are sneaking out of their sheltered, secret woodlands, using the drive-thru to surreptitiously order new frappe flavors in the dark of night when their own frappe bars are closed.  One or two of them have even been caught on camera.  Just take a look below and you'll see absolutely unrefuted proof of that!

     This delightful image is from Sasayaki Glitter and is for their November Progressive Challenge.  I colored it with my ProMarkers and cut it to fit the card front.  The pale "blue" shading on the unicorn is actually a light shade of periwinkle but it turned blue in the photo.  The card is almost all purples, not counting the frappe.  :-D

     The sentiment is printed separately, bordered with purple, spot bleached, CS and both were adhered to the card front.  I had one strip of the purple CS left so I added it to the left side of the card.

     I wanted this to be really CAS so I did not embellishment beyond the purple CS strips.  I think it makes a great masculine card.

LOL! Great sentiment, Connie, and love the colors - the crafters playing in the Progressive Challenge have done a fab job coloring this little guy. Each one is so different. Yours is the only light colored I've seen so far, and it looks so different from the darker versions. I really love the purpleness and shading in your frappe. LOL hugs, de
