Nothing to Fawn Over, Deer

Today I was doing some power leveling in the Red Willow Glen, trying to go up a few levels as we have a difficult quest ahead of us in the next fortnight. The beetles that inhabit the glen are particularly good for this as they offer a lot of experience when slain. I had just finished off a group of three and was drinking a mana potion to refresh my magic points when I saw a fawn wandering by herself. If the beetles swarmed the poor deer, she would surely be defeated. I made my way over to her, keeping an eye out for her mother.

I made this card by cutting out the square base using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I then stamped the deer using the Unity “Deer to Me” set and paper pieced their bodies. The little heart/word bubble and the sentiment all came from that same set. The branches and shape the sentiment is stamped on, I cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge, whilst the word “mom” I cut using the Storybook cartridge.

The inside sentiment (which made me laugh so hard when I saw this set online, it prompted me to purchase it) I stamped using the Unity “Deer to Me” set again, earning me +291 consistency exp points. I subtly stamped the tree using the Unity "Naturally Yours" set in red so you can easily write a personal message over top it.

I stamped some leafy branches on the envelope using the Unity “Naturally Yours” set again.

This ‘lil deer will be fawned over in the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #52 (used #1-no flowers, #2-use black or red or teal, #3-no markers, #9-make it square, not rectangular)
Unity Friends With Flair (later on this week)

I heard a branch snap behind me and whirled around, sword drawn. Emerging from the woods was the fawn’s mother. Just as I started to relax, her face twisted in horror and she let out a scream. Turning around I saw a swarm of blood beetles advancing. Luckily I had just drank that mana potion, as it allowed me to cast a shield on the scared little fawn beside me, whilst I entered into battle with the deadly coleoptera. Naturally, I prevailed, being the Guild Master and all, and was able to reunite the two deer and gain a level in the process.
