A Fairy Anticipated Message

Today, filled with melancholy over the absence of my sister, I took to Glitter Grove for a quiet stroll. I had not heard from the Lady Commander of Copics since her departure a fortnight ago, and wondered if she had made it to the Floundering Reef with those pirates. I sat beneath the shade of a willow tree and was completely lost in thought when a small voice pulled me out of my reverie.  
“Guild Master?” came a soft whisper from above me.
“Tis I,” I replied, standing and turning to see the speaker.
A tiny glittering fairy sat upon a low branch looking at me. “I have news of your sister.” 

This card was made for the Creative Card Crew “Fairy Day” challenge that is happening now. Make a fairy-licious project and come play along with us for your chance to win a prize from our sponsors!

I started this card by colouring the Day For Daisies “Fall Fairy Friend” image using Prismacolor pencils. I then cropped it, cutting it so that her wings, foot and the leaf were hanging over the edge of the box. The sentiment was stamped with a Unity stamp and some stitching was added with a white gel pen.
Her wings are painted with shimmery gold and bronze paint, earning me +77 shiny XP points.

On the inside I stamped the top sentiment using the Crafty Secrets “Glamour Girls” set and the bottom one using the Unity “Happy Everything” kit.

The envelope was stamped with an flourish from the Crafty Secrets “Glamour Girls” set.

This card will fly into the following challenges:

It turns out that the Lady Commander had indeed made it to the Floundering Reef alive and was last seen entering the Duke of Dies lair. She had not emerged since. This news troubled me, and I set out at once for the Guild Hall to formulate a plan with the Guardian of Glitter. We had to save our missing guildy!
