LEVEL UP & Class Change!

Good day, traveller. Welcome to the Guild Hall. It would appear that I have now gained enough experience to level up my class to Creative Card Crew Design Team Member! I am very excited to take on this new crafty quest, as I will surely gain an abundance of experience along the way, allowing me to level up more! Everyone knows that with a class change you get a snazzy new outfit and with this enhancement, I was granted a new cloak. Donning this cloak gives me +200 commenting power points which I will use to imbue positive feedback to participants of the Creative Card Crew Ribbon Challenge participants. My direwolves are especially fond of my new cloak and I often find them snuggled up in it. 

I made this card using the Lycaonia image by Delicious Doodles, who is sponsoring the ribbon challenge at Creative Card Crew this fortnight. There is a good variety of images in their shop to suit your taste. You can check them out here:
nom nom nom...delicious!
I printed off the image and using a simple flame spell, burnt the edges of the paper. Don’t be alarmed, I did it over the sink, lest the paper catch fire and burn uncontrollably. After I had a nice burn pattern I coloured in the image using Prismacolors. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the shape for the sentiment, which I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “On the Mend” set.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Mark’s Finest Papers “Celebrate Big” and “Be Wild & Free” sets.

I stamped some pine branches onto the envelope to make it all woodsy using the Dylusions "Christmas Accessories" set.

This craft will also be found howling in the following challenges:
Pile It On Challenge #9: Happy Birthday
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
MFP SpeedyTV Simple Salutations Challenge #34: Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge #31: Greeting
A Gem of a Challenge #69: Button It

Paper Playtime Challenge #5: Anything Goes
One Crazy Stamper March “Anything Goes” Challenge
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #7: Anything Goes
Love To Create Challenge #55: Pick 2 Items to Use on Your Card (used ribbon and sentiment)

I look forward to travelling to all the different realms and seeing your creations in the Ribbon Challenge at Creative Card Crew this fortnight. Do not worry, I’ll leave my direwolves at the Guild Hall and try to use a lint brush on my new cloak to rid it of dog hair as best I can before I tromp all over your domain...maybe there’s a spell for that?
