The Cardinal Rule

Today the Lady Commander of Copics, Guardian of Glitter and I were traversing Hortons Hills, doing some minor crafty questing when we received a fire message from Guild Apprentice Lindsay who was watching over the Guild Hall in our absence. It appears the man we had assisted only a few days ago had taken a turn for the worst. Guild Apprentice Lindsay had went to the village to take a look at the fellow and she said it appears the brigands had used some sort of advanced time release poison. As we were leagues away from the village, we put together a kit containing all the ingredients and instructions Lindsay would need to perform the spell to dispel the poison and sent it using a cardinal. Hopefully her magic was at a high enough level to be successful. 

To make this card I cut the bird using the Campin’ Critters cartridge and gave him some googley eyes (because googley eyes make everything cuter). The sentiment I cut from the “Just Because” Cards cartridge. I embossed the blue strip using the Cuttlebug, added a button and some of that “floss” type stuff to finish the front of the card. I managed to earn +79 texture exp points with this card, which actually leveled that skill up!

On the inside I cut a shape using the “Just Because” Cards cartridge and stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Sophie’s Sentiments.”

This cardinal creation will fly on into the following challenges:
Die Cuttin’ Divas Challenge #100: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes
Crafts and Me Challenge #118: Your Favourite Embellishment (buttons!)
The Perfect Sentiment Challenge #84: Anything Goes With a Die-Cut
MFP Speedy Tv Simple Salutations Challenge #30: Anything Goes
Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Get Well Challenge
Spark Your Creativity Now Challenge #6: Anything Goes

Luckily, Lindsay’s enchanted Book of Memories and Stamp of Remembering she obtained during the Guild Raid paid off, as she had just enough mana and skill level to complete the spell, saving the villager’s life. I do believe that Lindsay is well on her way to becoming a full-fledged Guildy!
