The Party Continues on the AWCB


Well I'm winging my way home from Florida and our nephew's beautiful wedding, probably as you read this, but managed to work ahead for this Mid- Inspiration Post for our special 4th Anniversary Party/Sprite Delight V Challenge.  I hope you've all collected your "party favor" as she is still available until the challenge close on April 14th and look forward to you joining us with ANY of Mitzi's adorable Sprites.



Okay, I'm sure those of you have been experiencing Winter weather far longer than normal are not thrilled to see a snowy card, but I'm fond of doing Christmas year 'round and to be honest, I had a major Copic catastrophe with my original image and plan and this cutie was started for some other challenges. Pretty sure Hot Cocoa Sprite, available HERE on AuroraWings .com and HERE on Etsy could melt even the coldest heart though, don'tcha think?



Here's a closeup of Hot Cocoa Sprite.  He's colored with Copics and fussy cut after gluing him on some light turquoise card stock.  I then glued him to a snowflake ornament and clipped him to a double stitched tag from Gina Marie.  The gorgeous hand dyed crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art.



I thought this turned out so cute that it would be fun to make him removable from the card to hang on your tree, so here he is doing just that.  WooHoo!

If you're more in the mood for Springtime, be sure to visit the Challenge Blog and see the gorgeous makes by my Stella team sisters and don't forget to grab you "party favor" while you're there.  Hope to see you join in our Sprite Delight V/4th Anniversary Celebration.  Double prizes this time.  WooHoo!


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

  1. Hope you had a wonderful time at the wedding. ^_^ A card with a removable ornament! What a brilliant idea, Donna! As much as I look forward to the spring weather, this cutie brought back the memories of all the good things about winter with his cozy adorableness! I just can't get enough of the sheepskin texture you captured on his little costume - so cuddly sweet. Thank you so much for this lovely inspiration for our mid-challenge post for the Sprite Delight V challenge! Mitzi xxx
