I'll Love My Direwolf Fur-Ever!

After the hard battle fought earlier today at Bradsville, I needed to do something relaxing to wind down. I decided a nice long walk through the Forbidden Forest with my direwolf, Lycan would suffice. I quickly learned why it was called the forbidden forest though, and what was supposed to be a relaxing walk to wind down, turned into a battle with some skeletal brigands.
I started by stamping the image from The Greeting Farm’s “Furever” set. I crafted this card outside the Guild Hall, and as such didn’t have my trusty Prismacolor sticks. I had to use what was available to me...some half broken Crayon pencil crayons. Side note: Crayola pencil crayons do not blend well. So please forgive the subpar colouring which made me lose -50 colouring exp points. I didn’t even know you could lose exp before this. I distressed and inked the edges, adding some brads that I received as a reward for defending Bradsville. The sentiment and bone came from the same stamp set. I used the Pack Your Bags cartridge to cut out the little postage stamp shapes to stamp them on. Wow...I just said stamp a lot of times...I added that paw print ribbon that has been sitting in my stash for over a year and NEVER been used.
The inside sentiment, heart and paws are all also from The Greeting Farm’s “Furever” set. I distressed and inked the edges of this paper too.
I stamped some paws on the envelope to make everything coordinate.

I will walk this card into the following challenges:
MFP Speedy TV Simple Salutations Challenge #26: Card Using a Dog
Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge #11: Anything Goes
Paper Playtime Challenge #1: Pets
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #1: Use Ribbon
The Corrosive Challenge #165: Out With the Old (that pawprint ribbon is oooold)
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #5: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Embrace the Old
Fairy Tale Challenge #58: Animals & Pets
EmergencyCrafters: New Years Resolution  (I’ve had the pawprint ribbon for over a year and never used it before!)

My direwolf and I were able to easily defeat the brigands. I gave up trying to go on a relxing walk and simply headed back to the Guild Hall for a cup of tea and a good book. *sigh* Adventuring is hard work.
