The Sparkle Strike

Alas...it was a busy night in the Guild Hall tonight. The dire wolves were restless, sensing a change in the air as autumn fast approaches and enemies draw nigh - enemies, bearing glitter. I spotted their approach as I was in the rookery, tending to the owls. It is hard to be stealthy when one is made entirely of glitter. Anticipating an attack, I quickly sent word to the Guardian of Glitter, knowing she would know how to best defend the Guild Hall from a sparkly strike. As the battle started, glitter dust rose in the air. Not wanting to waste any of it, I collected as much as possible. Then I made a card.
I started out with this super cute goth girl I got from Meljen's Designs. I coloured her up with my Prismacolors, which are my favorite medium to colour stamps with. They just blend so nicely with the Gamsol. The light purple paper I embossed with the gears embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I used sandpaper to make it all "distressy" <-- just made that word up. I find you can make any word into an adjective by just adding "y". Totally legit! Anyways...went off on a grammar tangent there...I also distressed the edges of the polka dot paper. I stamped the banner from the Lawn Fawn "Bannerific" set and the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn "Clear to See" set. The final touch was some glitter on the little goth girl's skulls and the "whooshes" coming off her.
 Kinda hard to see...but it's there in all its glittery glory.
Simple inside...giving this card some purpose.
Matching envelope...because I like when things match. That cute skull stamp is from The Greeting Farm "Sweet & Toxic" set. I thought a girly skull would go with the cute little goth girl. I earned +53 dark magic exp points by crafting this card.

This cute goth girl card will be entered into the following challenges:
Paper Playtime Challenge #82: Polka Dots + Sentiment
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #66: Use Your Favorite Things (Prisma Colors are my favorite medium to colour stamps with!)
Meljen's Design Team Challenge #124: Sketch Challenge

Nikki, the Guardian of Glitter, was able to defeat the sparkly attackers, thus keeping the Guild Hall safe for another day. She collected the glittery bodies and loaded them onto a wagon to carry to her workshop to extract the glitter from them. Waste not want not. Blech.
