Anything Goes at Aurora Wings

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and aren't too full of chocolate bunnies and filled eggs to check out the new challenge at Aurora Wings.  We've made it easy for you with an Anything Goes theme, so there's no excuse not to join us. The sweet smells inspired me to use the gorgeous Honeysuckle Fairy,  available HERE on Etsy and HERE on  I've layered 2 sizes of Spellbinders Labels Seventeen with a lacy Luscious Labels One in between.  I've been hoarding that scrap of ribbon for quite awhile now and the vine motif seemed perfect for this card.

Here's a closeup of Honeysuckle Fairy.  She's colored with Copics with a tiny bit of white gel pen on the tips of the stamens.  To be honest, I thought honeysuckle flowers were mostly yellow but found a huge array of pictures on Yahoo (my go to place for photo inspiration) and was surprised at the variety.  I couldn't resist adding a little dragonfly and hummingbird to the glorious blooms. These tiny detailed stickers are from Little B and I find them so lifelike and charming.

Here's the dimensional shot.  Just a couple of pops, but I find it still adds a lot
to the overall feel.  The gorgeous background paper is from K&Co.  It's my favorite DP to use with AW images.  The sentiment is computer generated and I thought the "sweet" sentiment evoked the aroma of honeysuckle blooms. I hope you come visit the Challenge Blog for fabulous inspiration from my Aurora Teamies and please come play along.

And don't forget the new April 2017 FB contest in the Stamps by Aurora Wings FB Group.  Check it out HERE.  Did you know that you can enter the FB contests with coloring only, or even previous projects that fit the current theme?  Hope to see you there.

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

  1. I swear I can smell the unforgettable scent of honeysuckle when I look at this, Donna! Love the color palette - it's warm, fresh, and breezy, just like a perfect spring day. The sentiment is perfect for the image and the little hummingbird and dragonfly. Modern life tends to have us stressing about all kinds of things, but your card is a beautiful reminder that we are surrounded by simple and beautiful wonders of nature if we take time to stop and look. Thank you so much for this beautiful inspiration for our latest challenge! Mitzi xxx
