The Lost Direwolf Pup

Today the Crafters Guild had a quest of great import to complete. A little mage apprentice had lost her direwolf pup whilst exploring the forest for potion ingredients. The Lady Commander of Copics, Guardian of Glitter and I are all animal lovers and immediately sprung into action when the little mage showed up on our doorstep with her tale. I set the tearful girl up in the kitchens with a cup of hot cocoa and a plate of biscuits and left Mildred, one of the house gnomes, to watch over the lass while we set out. I took my direwolf, Lycan with us on the search, figuring his powerful sense of smell might be useful. We scoured the forest for hours and found no sign of the pup. Nikki finally decided to cast a glitter location spell to aid us in our search. That spell and some lucky die rolls led us straight to the lost direwolf.
I cut out a circle from the Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped the s.w.a.l.k. image on it. I then coloured the cutie with Prismacolors (my usual medium of choice). It's hard to tell in the picture, but I also added some glitter to the white parts on her coat to make it sparkly. I then stamped the first part of the sentiment that came with that set. Lastly I stamped some snowflakes around her because it looked toooooo plain for me. Then I cut out a large circular star from Art Philosophy to put behind the image. It wasn't as big as I'd hoped, but decided to use it anyways. Lastly I cut the pink stars from Art Philosophy and stamped the white star images on them from the coordinating Close To My Heart stamp set. Then I added some more glitter to the center of those earning me +90 sparkle exp points.
I used a circle to stamp the last part of the sentiment on the inside because the stamp is curved for a circle. It's a little hard to read in this picture, but just click on it and it will make it BIGGER and easier to see ;)
I stamped a snowflake flourish on the envelope to fancy it up a little.

I will be entering this pink papercraft into the following challenges:
