Drunken Sparkles Galore

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I had to head to the royal dungeons to free the Guardian of Glitter. It would seem she was running amok last night, drunk off wine of the fae, spreading sparkles on everything and everyone she passed. Luckily, because the Crafters Guild is in good standing with the king and queen, we were able to get an audience with the royal couple rather quickly to beg for her release. 

I started this card by embossing the blue cardstock with the Winter Frolic coordinating Cuttlebug folder. It’s a pretty busy pattern, so I wanted to keep everything else simple. I cut the sentiment out of shiny white paper using the Winter Frolic cartridge. I then added some glitter around the edges of the embossed “shape” and popped a bow at the top, calling it a day and earning me +55 simplicity exp points.

This CAS holiday card will sparkle in the following challenges:

I assured their highnesses, that this type of thing would never happen again. Frankly I don’t even know where she got access to fairy wine. Any true adventurer knows better than to eat or drink anything from the fae kingdom! Unless....yes....perhaps someone tricked poor Nikki into drinking the wine, not telling her it was of the fae. But to what end? It would seem another mystery has presented itself. Before we could begin to solve it though, we would have to help the Guardian of Glitter clean up the sparkley mess she created in last night’s glittery escapade...
