Anything Goes at Aurora Wings!

We're celebrating two amazing years of challenges at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog with the ever popular theme of ANYTHING GOES!  How fast the time has flown and I'm so proud to say I've been a part of this fabulous team since the beginning.  This is one challenge you don't want to miss, because we have TWICE the prizes for this challenge event. That's DOUBLE the chances of winning!  Woohoo!  So, to make the most of your chances, you'll be wanting to use AW images so you can enter up to 3 times (although non AW digis are welcome, you may only enter once if it's not AW.) My project features Slow Loris in Leaves, a special AW digi ONLY available with a $10 or more donation to our special Slow Loris Rescue Fundraiser, part of our 2 year Anniversary Celebration.

Here's a better view of the precious digi that Mitzi created especially for this event.  As I said, he's only available with a $10 or more donation, but any amount is welcome and greatly appreciated.  Visit the AW Showcase Blog post that find out more about about this sweet endangered species and see examples of the first tier Slow loris Sprite digi that you will receive in addition to this cutie for your $10+ donation or alone for a donation of any amount.

Here's his Kodak moment.  The slow loris comes in several different colorations. This time I chose a more neutral variation to blend more easily into his environment.  He's colored with Copics with fur detail from Prismacolor Pencils. I've used Diamond Glaze and white gel pen to further enhance those mesmerizing eyes. Could he be more adorable?

My card is the tent variety, with front cut outs from Spellbinders Labels 28.  The papers are from Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue.  The black background is especially fitting, as the slow loris is a nocturnal animal.  The sentiment is computer generated and reads  "Handle with care or leave me alone". Unfortunately, his adorable looks has made him fall prey to the illegal pet trade and much mistreatment.  We invite you to take up the cause, even if only by displaying the badge on your blog (available on the AW Showcase Post) to raise awareness of their plight.  Thank you so much!!  Be sure to enter our FB contest with either, or BOTH of these adorable digis (and they will work for our ATG challenge too).

Oops!  got a little carried away here.  The Aurora team has a fabulous collection of ATG projects that you won't want to miss, so be sure to visit the Challenge Blog for amazing inspiration.  Thank you so much for your continuing support of Aurora Wings challenges.  We can't wait to see what you create.
