Day Dreaming a Nightmare

Welcome to the Guild Hall. Today I decided to take my direwolf, Lycan and head to the Whispering Woods. I needed to escape the hall and have some alone time. There is a little known spot in the center of the woods that is filled with fluttering butterflies. Lycan trotted beside me, occasionally darting off to hunt, but never straying too far. Using my magical compass, I was easily able to find the butterfly filled clearing. I found a nice tree and was just about to sit and relax when I suddenly noticed the ominous absence of the mystical butterflies. I slowly turned and was surprised to see a giant Insectoid demon. Luckily, a good guildy never leaves without a plethora of weapons. I quickly downed an elixir and freed my blade from its sheath.

There is a lot going on in this card. I started by cutting the tag using the Winter Frolic cartridge and inking it up. 
The butterflies I cut using the Cricut Give a Hoot cartridge, then stamped some designs on their wings with the Lawn Fawn “Sophie’s Sentiments” set. The sentiment I stamped using the Dylusions “Quintessential Quotes” set.

On the inside I stamped some simple flowers and doodled around the edge. I left the inside blank so this card can really be used for anything, or a “just because”. This earned me +492 versatility exp points.

This tag/card combo meal will take flight in the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge #108: Initials (CT - “Cricut” & “Tag”)

My direwolf must have sensed I was in danger, as he quickly returned to my side and was ready for battle. We were able to perform some tricky beast mode dual techs and fell the foul creature. As the Insectoid demon crumpled to the ground, the butterflies slowly started to fill the clearing once more. I watched in awe as they shone with a golden light, surrounding my direwolf and I, in what I can only imagine was thanks for defeating the demon invader.
