Christmas Tree Sprite - New Release from Aurora Wings

Today I'm hanging with the Aurora Wings Showcase Team again and am very excited to introduce the adorable new release, Christmas Tree Sprite, debuting today at Aurora Wings on Etsy and the Aurora Wings Digi Shop.  I just love all Mitzi's Sprites, they're so sweet and whimsical, and he is no exception.  A must for Christmas, don'tcha think?  I thought he'd make a great tag to go on a special present.  The tag was cut with my trimmer and I've used a MS Gingerbread punch along the bottom.

Isn't he the sweetest?  He's colored with Copics and I've used Card Candy and adhesive beads for his ornaments.  The star on top is a glitter sticker from JoLee's.

I actually printed him 7 times to get the dimension I was going for.  I don't scan my images for layering each layer was colored individually, fussy cut and popped.  He's standing on some mini blocks (with a hug and a kiss) and I've added some buttons and ribbon to finish it off.  For more inspiration, be sure to visit the Showcase Blog to see the gorgeous creations by the Showcase Team.

I'm entering this in the C.R.A.F.T. Christmas Challenge, the Outlawz Paper a la Mode Cute Christmas, the Divas by Design Photo Inspiration Challenge, the Holly Jolly Christmas Color Choice Challenge (red, green and white), Papertake Weekly 2 or 4 Legs, Sweet Stamps Lovely Layers, TTRCD ATG, Craftin Desert Diva's Tags Linky Party, the Simon Says Monday Ornaments Challenge, TTPH Use a Punch or Die Challenge (MS punch along the bottom),  and last, but never least, 613 Avenue Create ATG/RAK Challenge.


  1. It's always so fun to check out your blog post for all the extra pics, Donna. I thought the layering 3D effect with this image was awesome, but I appreciate this at a whole different level after reading you handcolored all 7 layers! *_* All the embellishments are so cute on this very special gift tag - it's a special gift in itself. :D Thank you again for joining the Showcase team with your fantastic creation!!

    Big hugs,
