A Flowery Deception

As I was wandering the Fuchsia Fields, picking some early blooming flowers to adorn my crafting chambers, I spotted a little girl nearby picking flowers as well. I hailed the lass, but did not receive any response. Shrugging, I turned from her and continued to gather flowers. As I stood up after picking some pretty sparkling rossettas, the girl was standing right in front of me. She looked up at me from under the brim of her oversized hat with burning red eyes. I was about to open my mouth to speak, when she beat me to it, barring her sharp pointed teeth and hissing. 

This card was created for the Just Some Lines Mother's Day challenge, happening now! You can use the freebie provided (or any Just Some Lines image) and win some digis from the Just Some Lines shop!

I started this gate fold card by colouring the Just Some Lines image using Prismacolor pencils. I cut the shapes out using the Art Philosophy cartridge and embossed the green piece with my Cuttlebug. The sentiment I stamped using The Greeting Farm “Special Autumn” set. I added some ribbon and a bow to finish off the front of this card, earning myself +59 embellishment exp points.

On the inside I used some leftover scraps of the paper on the front and stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set.

I stamped the envelope with some flowers from the Unity “With Sympathy” set to make it match the pink card.

This mother’s day delight will take root in the following challenges:

I dropped the flowers I was holding and drew my blade. Her innocent facade melted away revealing a flugian demon. After a brief battle, during which I crushed all my freshly picked flowers underfoot, I hurried back to the Guild Hall, lest there be more flugian demons lurking about. These vile creatures are known to travel in packs and I didn’t want to risk getting swarmed. Not for flowers anyways. Now had it been, say, chocolate at stake...
