Early Morning Pentagrams

This morning I awoke to frantic pounding on the Guild Hall door. Donning my fur robes and wiping sleep from my tired eyes, I padded down the stone stairs to see what all the commotion was about. I swung open the door and standing there was a clearly distressed woman. “Please, you must help me!” she cried. “Someone has stolen my baby!” I took her to the kitchen and Olga the house gnome fixed the poor woman a cup of tea whilst I roused the Lady Commander of Copics and we got dressed for the unexpected early morning quest.

This Christmas card was a fairly simple one. I cut the image using the Winter Frolic cartridge and glued it all together. I added some yellow glitter to the star to make it look more...well...like a shiny star. This earned me +50 glimmer exp points. I cut the oval shape out and stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. Some pieces of brown cord finished off the front of this creation.

On the inside I stamped some more words from the “Christmas Wishes” set - nothing too fancy.

I offer this starry card to the following challenges:
My Craft Spot Challenges #83: Bling it Up!

After casting some locating spells, we managed to find the baby in an old barn on a piece of abandoned property. Surrounding the trough the child was laying in were black markings and pentagrams. Obviously the work of some demon or witch trying to perform a dark ritual. This was all much too heavy for me first thing in the morning, before I've even had a cup of coffee. We rescued the child and searched for the guilty party, but could find no trace of the being. We will have to remain vigilant to ensure no more children are taken from the village.

Dark warlock luring in the darks, stealing babies and trying to perform sinister rituals? This thought is unbearable without coffee.

I always comment on your stories and almost forget the card - which is very nice.
