Paper Bag Guildy

Today as I was breakfasting, the Lady Commander of Copics came into the dining hall wearing a paper bag over her head. I couldn’t contain my laughter and spit out the coffee I had just drank when she sat down across from me.
“What is with the bag, sister?” I said, trying to contain my giggles.
“I woke up this morning with a horrid rash over my face. I have tried all the salves we have and nothing is working. I think it was those inkta plants we walked through whilst questing yesterday.”
“It’s just me and the house gnomes here. I’m not going to judge you. You actually look more ridiculous wearing that paper bag,” I stated.
“But the Duke of Dies is coming today and I should hate for him to see my skin blemished. What if he doesn’t like me anymore?” she whined. 

This card was made using a paper bag (like a regular lunch sack) as the base, which to me, makes the sentiment even funnier. The paper bag image was stamped with a Unity Stamp from the “Ol’ Bag of Fun” Kit of the Month. The Happy Birthday was stamped using the Mark’s Finest Paper “Celebrate Mini” and the bottom sentiment came from that same Unity kit. Some googley eyes and a little bow finished off the paper bag. I then adhered it to the card using pop dots for some extra dimension and +364 dimensional XP points which allowed me to level up that skill!

On the inside I stamped the top sentiment using the There She Goes “Wilbur” set and the bottom one from the Unity “Ol’ Bag of Fun” kit. The top sentiment worked on a couple different levels. It’s like, “well you’re old, but don’t worry about your looks, it’s what’s inside you that matter.” But it’s also like, “I made you this snarky card, but it’s what’s inside the card that counts”...

Ta-da! A gift card. I made a little gift card holder panel to slide into the side of the paper bag. The bottom panel was stamped using an image from the “Ol’ Bag of Fun” kit and the sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn “Winter Gifts” set.

This bag will crumple into the following challenges:

I was concerned when I heard the Duke of Dies would be coming here after what had happened last time. I hastily left the dining hall to contact the Guardian of Glitter. We would have to set up a protective spell around the Guild Hall if that fiend would be coming here. Perhaps he would be able to redeem himself from his previous actions...or perhaps we may have to slay him once and for all.
