A Cheap Spring Mascot

With the Spring Festival drawing nigh, preparations are in full swing at the Guild Hall. The house gnomes have been busy decorating eggs with the help of our little visitor and some colour spells here and there. I was in the crafting chambers trying to finish off some last minute crafty quests when I heard a shriek. I rushed to the kitchens and was surprised to see that one of the eggs Olga was in the middle of decorating had hatched, bearing a chick! 

This simple Easter card was made by cutting out the image using the Simply Charmed cartridge. I inked around the edges of the chick, earning myself +90 shady XP points.

This card will crack open in the following challenges:

“Cheep?” the chick peeped, looking around in confusion. I found an old crate, lined it with linens then carefully placed the bird inside. The yellow ball of fluff wandered around, checking out its new digs, before snuggling against the cozy sheet. I suppose we’ve found the Guild Hall mascot for the Spring Festival.
