An Emo Zombie Meal

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I spent the day clearing out a zombie nest in the deserted Adhesive Village. The inhabitants have long fled, or been eaten and turned into zombies and the small settlement was now infested. We didn’t expect to find any survivors, but it was dangerous to let that many zombies nest together, lest they decide to venture into some of the surrounding towns. Imagine our surprise when we came across a young girl huddled in an underground bunker. She wore black Winter Festival garb, which I found odd considering it is the middle of summer.
“Come with us, miss. We can get you out of here,” I said, extending my hand to help her up.
She looked at my outstretched arm and shook her head sadly. “No one came help me now. You’d best leave.”

I started this Christmas card by colouring the Delicious Doodles “An Emo Christmas” image using Prismacolor pencils. To earn some sparkle magic exp, I added some ice stickles to the “fluffy” parts of her dress and her hat. 
Soooo ****sparkly**** I embossed the black shimmer paper using my Cuttlebug and a snowflake folder. The sentiment I stamped using the Dylusions “Christmas Words” set. I then used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the snowflakes out, adding some brads in the center.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Unity “Naughty is the New Nice” kit and the Echo Park “Holly Jolly Christmas” set. I then used the Unity “Warm Wishes Snowflake {vintage]” set and stamped the background, earning me +134 coverage exp points.

I used that same stamp on the envelope to make everything all matchy-match.

This emo Christmas card will sulk in the following challenges:

The Lady Commander urged me to leave the girl and move on as a zombie hoard was closing in on our position.
“You can’t stay here! Your supplies will eventually run out, and if you leave this bunker, they will kill you,” I pleaded with the girl.
“It doesn’t matter now,” she said in that same sulky tone.
“Leave her, sister. She is consumed by the eeyore sickness. We must go,” Angela hissed glancing over her shoulder at the approaching zombies. I acquiesced, leaving the sad girl to her zombie infested solitude. On the bright side, we gained a ton of experience from killing those zombies and managed to go up a few levels!

I always know I'm in for an adventure when I see your name in on a linky list! I wasn't disappointed today. Glad you escaped the zombies and too bad about the girl with the eyeore sickness. I think I've met a few of them before. Anway, on to the important stuff: I have not seen many black and white Christmas cards, but yours is quite striking! Love that black shimmer paper. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
