Tag Along to the Caverns

Welcome to the Guild Hall. Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I travelled to the snow covered land of Oakmont Glade in search of some sparkle flakes that we could use to create more magical potions. As we trudged through the deep snow, trying to read our tattered map in the blustering wind, a snowflake nymph glided up beside us, riding her magical snowflake.
“You all look a little lost. And cold,” she said eyeing Angela’s red cheeks and chattering teeth.
“We are in search of sparkle flakes, but seem to have taken a wrong turn in this storm,” I said holding up our worn map.
“Follow me. You can warm up until this storm passes, and then I’ll show you to the sparkle flake caverns,” the purple-haired nymph said. She zoomed off to the north and the Lady Commander and I gladly followed, anticipating a fire and thawing our frozen limbs. 

This was created for the Creative Card Crew “Tags” challenge that is happening right now! Make a tag and play along for your chance to win three Birdie Brown images!! The only problem you will have is choosing only three since they are the most adorable images EVER.
I started this tag by making the background. I swiped three different shades of Distress Ink on my craft mat, sprayed them generously with water and wiped the tag through. I dried it with my heat gun of +400 whooshiness and repeated that process two more times to get the look I wanted. I then used a Unity snowflake stamp and smashed that all over the tag to complete the background.
I coloured the cute Birdie Brown “Lala” image using my Prismacolors and cut her out. She looked to me like she was riding something, so I cut a snowflake out using the Artbooking cartridge and glued her on. Weeeeeeee!
I cut another snowflake using Artbooking again and covered it with ice stickles earning myself +110 sparkly exp points and going up a glittery level! The sentiment I stamped using the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. 

This tag will fall into the following challenges:

After letting us warm up and waiting for the raging snow storm to pass, the snowflake nymph lead us to the sparkle flake cavern so we could gather our boon. I gave her my thanks and told her to send a raven to the Guild Hall should she ever need the assistance of the Crafters Guild.
