Introducing Four New Sprites from Aurora Wings!

It's a happy day on the AuroraWings Showcase Blog where four new Sprites are making their debut.  I'm thrilled to be joining the Showcase team to introduce the newest members of the Sprite family.  Here's the adorable Trumpet Honeysuckle Sprite.  Isn't she sweet?  These flowers need some support via trellises or other structures so I've added a trellis die cut across from Spellbinders along with a fancy trellis medallion from Heartfelt Creations. 

Here's a closeup of Trumpet Honeysuckle Sprite.  I've colored her with Copics in the colors that a neighbor has covering his mailbox.  Hope the mailman doesn't get stung when delivering the mail there, as these flowers are often teeming with bees.  But I'm sure they're the friendly ones like the brads I've added to my card.  They're a favorite for butterflies and hummingbirds, as well.

I've used the new sketch from the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge for the design.  They've helped me out countless times when I've been struggling with a design.  I've substituted a die cut sentiment from Die-versions for the banner up top and added quilling strip streamers at each end, like those I've woven through the trellis.

Now are you ready to see the rest of the adorable new Sprites?  Of course you are!  How about a peek?  Here are the colored samples of the other 3 Sprites being Showcased, but you'll have to visit another post to see the finished projects.
