If There's a Will, Butterflies Will Show You the Way

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I spent the day traversing the mystical, yet strangely fluffy, Velveteen Vale. We were trying to locate the elusive cotton candied tree when suddenly a myriad of butterflies erupted from the tall grass, encasing us in a fluttering rainbow tornado of tiny beating wings.

I started this bookmark by making the background using the “Worn Music” stamp by Unity and inking around the edges using Distress Ink. I then stamped the butterfly from the Unity “You Give Me Tiny Butterflies” set in three different colours and cut them out. The sentiment came from the Unity “Tail Feather” set. I earned myself +1046 trinity unity exp points with this creation. I’m not quite sure what those exp points count towards, but I got a lot of them, so it must be something good.

This bookmark will flutter into the following challenges:

The cloud of butterflies began to move, taking us along with it. It was slow at first, but before we knew it, the Lady Commander and I were racing over the soft grass of the Velveteen Vale. Abruptly the butterfly herd stopped and dissipated, all flying off in different directions. When the swarm cleared we were surprised to see we were standing before the great cotton candied tree! Delighted at our luck, my sister and I began to harvest the fluffy pink cotton which we would use to create some new armours and accessories back at the Guild Hall.
