Let's Go For a Skate

Today we received a message from the Rainbow Glitter Cavern workers asking us for help. It seems someone has been sneaking into the caverns and stealing the glitter plants. The Guardian of Glitter was outraged and was not about to let such an transgression go unpunished. The fastest way to Rainbow Glitter Cavern in the winter is to cross the Lake of Mirrors which is frozen solid during these frigid months. We donned our new Glide Boots and started the journey across the frozen water. To my surprise, the Guardian of Glitter was a natural in the Glide Boots! She sped across the ice never stumbling or slipping once. The Lady Commander of Copics and I followed shakily behind her, clutching each other for support.
I started by stamping Kraftin’ Kimmie’s “Antoinette” and colouring her up using Prismacolors. I added some glitter to the white portions of her dress to make it all glisteny and sparkly. [side note: I find it perfectly acceptable to turn any noun or verb into an adjective by adding a “y”. Lol...ok...carrying on]. After that was done, I went searching my stash for some background paper to use. I was delighted to come across a sheet of 4x6 Christmas journaling cards that had one that matched my image perfectly and had the perfect blank rectangle for her to go in! I totally forgot I had bought that paper! Jackpot! I then cut out a banner from Art Philosophy and stamped the sentiment on it. I decided it still looked a little plain, so I cut some snowflakes from the Winter Woodlands cartridge and glittered the heck out of them, earning myself +692 sparkle exp points!! Level up time!
The inside sentiment came from the My Pink Stamper “Biggie Christmas Sentiments” set. The pink holly was stamped from the Tim Holtz “Christmas Memories” set.
I also stamped some more pink holly on the envelope I made using my Scoring Board Of +70 Creasiness.

This glistening glittery wonder will be entered into the following challenges:

We finally reached the Rainbow Glitter Caverns and I was happy to get those Glide Boots off my feet! After some investigating we came across a couple footprints next to one of the missing glitter plants. Judging from the shape of the print, this could only be the work of the Cloven Sisters. They’ve been trying to get their hooves on some glitter plants to use in their ominous experiments for some time now. Looks like that was our next stop.
