My Pink Maiden

Today there was a magnificent celebration in the village square as one of the smallfolk celebrated her 16th nameday. It was a grand occasion as she was now eligible to wed. As such, suitors came from distant lands with gifts for the young maiden as her beauty was renowned throughout the realm, much to the displeasure of Princess Prina, who was now in her 19th year and still unwed. It wasn’t long before the royal guards stormed the party, no doubt sent by the princess in her jealousy of the young girl’s many suitors.

I started this card by popping an ink virgin’s cherry and stamping The Greeting Farm’s image from the “Miss Anya Lounge” set. It was the last girl from the set that I hadn’t used yet! Woot. I coloured her using Prismacolor pencils and gave her a nice sparkly hair clip. I cut the tab-y thing out using the Art Philosophy cartridge and placed the girl peeking through the flowery hole. I stamped the banner using the Lawn Fawn “Bannerific” set, adding some shading with Distress Markers and stamped the sentiment inside using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set. I dug into my vast black button cavern and pulled out some of the ebony gems to use on this card, earning me +141 dark magic exp points. Some metal brads and a ribbon finished off the front.

On the inside I used some pink animal print paper and stamped the sentiment using the My Creative Time “Wow! So Many Candles” set.

On the envelope I stamped a flower using the My Little Shoebox “Farmer’s Market” set and coloured it in with Distress Markers.

This card will take a peek in the following challenges:
Use It Tuesday Challenge #59: Birthdays (got to use up some black buttons from my vast collection AND inked a virgin stamp!)

As we saw the guards coming, the Guildys and I drew our weapons, prepared to defend the smallfolk from any sort of bullying the royal guards were sent to do. The four of us rode up to the entrance of the village square, weapons at the ready and magic crackling at our fingertips. The royal guards knew they were no match for our spells and superior weapons and retreated without a fight. There was sure to be retribution from Princess Prina for this. We would have to remain vigilant, and perhaps enlist some protection for the young maiden.
