This card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4."  I used white card stock for the card base.  The grey mat is 4 3/8"x6 1/8, and the blue plaid mat is 4 1/4"x6."  The grey strip is 2"x5" and the blue polka dot strip is 1 7/8"x4 7/8."  I added three aqua gems to the bottom corner of the strip.

The unicorn is a Paper Smooches stamp.  It is from the Spectrum set.  I colored it and covered parts of it with Stickles.  Turquoise and midnight blue for the hair and turquoise and silver for the horn.  I also covered its hooves and eye with glossy accents.  I also added some aqua hearts, from the same stamp set, around the unicorn.  It is on a piece of white card stock, cut at 2 7/8"x2 3/8."  I matted it with grey card stock, cut at 3"x2 1/2."

The sentiment and banner are both also Paper Smooches stamps.  The banner is from the set called Streamers and the sentiment is from the set called Sentiment Sampler.  I stamped the banner, then cut it out and stamped the sentiment.  I adhered the banner with foam tape for some added dimension.

I made this for the following challenges:
