The Fuzzy Kidnappers

The past few days the Lady Commander of Copics has been absent from the Guild Hall. At first I thought nothing of it, as she has taken off on her own colouring quests before without word, but as more time passed I became increasingly more concerned. I tried contacting the Guardian of Glitter for assistance, but she was off on her own sparkly quest spreading some much need bling on some drab wedding projects. Dejected, I set off on my own to locate Angela. 

Imagine my surprise when a masked rider galloped by, leaving only a scrap of parchment in his wake. I nervously unfurled the note and read what I'm assuming was an attempt at a ransom letter. "We have girl. Bring gold. And food. We like candy." Annoyed, I changed direction and headed to the market to purchase some sweets for the grammatically challenged kidnappers. I purchased the confections and located the criminals' dwelling (which turned out to be a simple cave). I gave them their candies and gold and got my sister back safely. Although truthfully I doubt she was ever in much danger from the fuzzy monsters who took her. They were really the cutest things ever, inspiring me to create a card upon my return to the Guild Hall.
I stamped that super cute monster using my new Stampotique stamp and coloured him with pencil crayons. The banner was from the Lawn Fawn "Bannerific" set. I embossed the bottom piece of paper, ripped up the top piece and arranged everything as so. You can't tell from the picture, but I also used Glossy Accents on the monster's eyes.
I kept up the "rippiness" in the inside of the card and stamped the sentiment "Happy Birthday, Human". That monster stamp was just from the cheap bin at Michaels. 
And of course, I made a matching envelope for this cute little monster magnum opus.

This cute birthday card earned me +89 stamping exp points and +903 distressing exp points which leveled up my distressing damage.

I will enter this into the following challenges:

Simply Create Too Challenge #19: Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #63: Monochromatic
Stampotique Designers Challenge #260: Sketch Challenge

I later found out that the Lady Commander planned that whole escapade with the monsters just to get some candy! I can hear her and our Guild Apprentice, Lindsay munching on it as I record this tale. Last time I come to her assistance.
