Aurora Wings Mid-Challenge Inspiration


Well, it's hard to believe we're moving into the second week in August, but that does mean it's time for mid challenge inspiration for Aurora Wings, with the easy peasy theme of...



I've used some new dies to make a wedding card with the adorable Honeysuckle Sprite.  Doesn't she look like a bride in those sweet pastels with the honeysuckles cascading from her hair like a veil?  She even has a matching bouquet.



Here's a closeup of Honeysuckle Sprite, available HERE on AuroraWings.com and HERE on Etsy.  I've colored her with Copics and carefully fussy cut and popped on the Layered Spellbinders Regular and Decorative Grand Labels One dies. The intricate floral arch is the Garden Arbour die by Tutti that I've adorned with flat back pearls.

Here's a side view of the window box style card.  The decorative gates were cut with the Pretty Piazza die set by Tonic Studios.  Because I didn't want Honeysuckle Sprite to be just floating on air (although I dare say most brides are at this point) I've added a grassy hill from one of the Lawn Cuts die set by Lawn Fawn.  The tiny (unreadable) sticker sentiment says "Best Wishes".  

There are tabs that fit though slits in the back base and larger gate so the card can be folded down to fit in an envie.  However, the added sprays on either side of the arbor make that a bit more difficult in this case.

Now of course you want to see the fabulous work by my Stella sisters, so be sure to stop by the Mid-Month Inspiration post and link up your projects.  Remember you can enter up to three separate times, as long as ALL of them feature Aurora Wings images.


Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.
