A Little Luck

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I were on a quest exploring Bone Folder’s Crease, a dangerous valley ripe with putrid undead. It is certaining not a locale one goes for pleasure, but we needed a flowering pumice pear plant and they were only know to grow in the Crease. As such, we armed ourselves to the teeth, as it were, and set out. We had been searching for hours, encountered numerous battles and down to our last mana potion when we spotted a curious sight. A lone pale yellow butterfly fluttered in front of us before taking off to the east. We decided to follow the creature, mindful of the tale we had just heard.

I started this card by embossing two halves of a piece of shimmery white paper, earning me +291 texturization exp points and allowing me to level up! I then scored the unembossed strip and stamped the sentiment using a Close To My Heart set. The butterflies I cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. As a final touch I used some yellow raffia I had procured at the dollar store many moons prior.

On the inside I cut the white panel and another butterfly using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I then stamped the sentiment using the My Craft Spot “New Arrival” set.

This fluttery creation will fly into the following challenges:

The mysterious butterfly lead us straight to a small patch of grass, in the middle of which was growing the pumice pear plant we sought. Amazed at our luck, we carefully extracted what we required and after refilling our magic points with the last mana potion, used an escape spell to head back to the Guild Hall, as we definitely didn’t have enough potions to get us all the way back through Bone Folder’s Crease intact. The Lady Commander later confessed to me that she had slipped a luck stone in her satchel before we left which may have played a part in the butterfly’s appearance. No matter - quest complete.
