Crafty Catz challenge #413 - ANYTHING GOES with optimal challenge

Good morning here with this week challenge at CRAFTY CATZ.
Each week we have a for fun optional challenge which the team follow.
This weeks option has been set by our host Jac and is CAS
now i nearly ran for the hills as a ture CAS true is a card blank with a image or sentiment directly on and no embellishments. Well i struggle with this but here is my best shot at it.
We are sponsored this week by A DAY FOR DAISIES
A Day For Daisies
The team was allowed to play with some images and i picked this cutie called
little Striped dress

This is a Pearlised Card blank
I coloured the image with promarkers and fussy cut and glued to cards blank.
The wonderful was also coloured with promarkers and the birthday wishes is a rubber stamp heat embossed.
Sorry i had to add some girly stuff so added a corner gem embellishment
Now it would be lovely if you did the fun part but as i said not a must so no excuse not to play along.
Look forward to seeing what you have made.
Have a great weekend hop the sun comes out.
Bye for now

Alicia Bel - Animals & Fantastic Beasts

Good evening. Did you have a good weekend?
Well today i made a card for The Wonderful World of Alicia Bel
ALicia has a facebook page which she runs some challenges and this month she has mixed it up.
We are required to join a team of 4 and pick a name.
Well my team has some wonderful well known bloggers in it so fingers crossed
Our team is called The Eyes Have It 
The challenge is all to make something with a image from the store that fits the name of the challenge. then Alicia sends a clue and we have to guess what the image is from the store.
This can only be done when all 4 makes are done.
Now this only started yesterday and my 3 team mates have already completed theirs so i am bringing up the rear lol.
I have used this months cutie Happy Unicorn which is on special price so be quick HERE
I have take the picture from the side in the hope you can see the glitter I have added to the DP.
The DP is from Polkadoodles and I added the png of the Happy Unicorn then added a smaller one at the side, The Wishing You sentiment is computer generated.
Image coloured with promarkers.
I have added sparkle glitter to the tree and aded some white pain on the edges. 
Die cut silver mirri fence white banner and Tim Holts star edge die.
I matted the Dp with image onto some silver mirri
Then onto some Fushia and silver double sided paper which had been matted onto some pink pearl card All this was then placed on top some some pink spiders web onto a 8x8inch cream card base.
Added a happy birthday sentiment and job done.
close up of the image

Think this might be a 1st for me to add PNg to a Dp and then colour
I really enjoyed making this and hope you like too.
i just need a little girl with a birthday coming up.
Now if you fancy making up a team by joining 3 others we would love it there is another team and both teams are made of people that havent really worked together before.
i think it is a great way of getting to know people.
So why not come and play along you have a month to play and guess the digital image from your clues.. Thanks for popping by and hope to see some of you at the Facebook page.

i would like to enter this into the following challenges
