A Crappy Situation

Salutations. Today there was a slight mishap in the privy and I had to call a plumber in from the village to assist us as none of the spells seemed to be working. Oddly, this disgusting turn of events inspired me to create and I rushed to the crafting chambers to do so, taking care not to drink any liquids until the bathroom situation was remedied. 

I started this card by stamping and colouring the toilet paper roll using the Unity “Crappy Day” itty bitty. I then cut the background shape out using the Nifty Fifties cartridge and ran it through the Cuttlebug for some texture.
Let's open 'er up...

On the sides I embossed the panels using a Tim Holtz folder and inked around the edges. 
On the inside I stamped the sentiment with the same Unity itty bitty using Distress Markers instead of an ink pad to get some different colours. I then distressed the edges of the panel and added some brads.  

I made a little envelope to go with it and stamped some cute hearts. 

This little card will roll into the following challenges:

The man from the village did an excellent job and only charged five gold coins. I thanked him for the swiftness of his work and sent him on his way with a little care package from the house gnomes in the kitchens. Crisis averted.
