Aurora Wings Challenge #9

It's time for a new challenge at Aurora Wings and we've made it easy for you. Our new theme is Anything Goes and I've made a little Thanksgiving card using a number of the adorable Sprites.

I've modified a center step card to better accommodate all the little Sprites and used very old DP from the Debbie Mumm Holiday Glitter pack from JoAnn's.  the sentiment is computer generated and cut and embossed with a Spellbinder's Petite Scalloped Oval and inked with Distress.  The leaf is recycled "table confetti".

So let me introduce the Sprites.  First we have Corn Sprite,  Poor little guy looks kinda sad.  I tried to choose ones that might appear in our Thanksgiving Dinner. Corn pudding anyone?  Maybe that's why.  All images have been colored with Copics, and fussy cut.

Next we have  Artichoke Sprite,  I was thinking spinach artichoke dip here.

Cauliflower (or Broccoli) Sprite.  He's cauliflower today, thinking roasted cauliflower gratin, although we'll probably be having broccoli.  Needed a change from all the green.  LOL

Pumpkin Pie Kitten.  I'm the "pie girl" at Thanksgiving.  We'll be having pumpkin as well as pecan (my favorite!).  Tell me that kitty isn't the sweetest EVER! (Still workin' on that fur!)  This reminds me of Thanksgivings past when our friend's little boy (he'll be 21 in December) couldn't wait for pie and when we came out to cut it, it had little finger gouges in it.  I decorate my pies with crust cut outs which had strategically moved to disguise the the holes. LOL  (Of course, he didn't do it.)

And finally, the star of the show,  Turkey Sprite.  He's now available in the AW Etsy shop in both jpg and png formats.  Mitzi is in the process of converting many of her images to png so look for the colored dotty background if that's the format you want.  Turkey Sprite is mounted on an action wobble so he "wobbles when he gobbles".  Couldn't manage an action shot.  You'll just have to trust me on this.  I managed to resist that sentiment however.  LOL

Thanks for hanging in there with me, I had so much fun coloring these cuties. The team has had free reign with this challenge so be sure to visit the AW Challenge Blog to see the fabulous inspiration there.  We're so looking forward to what you come up with.  And don't forget to scroll down to see the lucky winners from our last challenge.  Our 1st Anniversary FB contest is still open with the theme of "My Favorite AW digi" so pop over and join us there, as well.
