Sprite Delight

     Today I want to share my next card done for the AuroraWings challenge using one of their sweet "Sprite" images, which was a freebie specifically for entry into the challenge.  How's that for perfect?  :-D  She's supposed to be a sunflower sprite but I used her as though she's a daisy.


I used the sketch from MFP Sketch with a Twist
and took my color inspiration from Craft Room Challenges.

  

     The image was colored with ProMarkers and then die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I saved the little butterflies that fell out of the circle and used them as embellishments after adding glitter and pearls to them.  The ribbons are from my stash and I added pearls to the bow just to complement the butterflies.

     The dp is from a stack by Recollections.  I printed the sentiment, fussy cut it, distressed the edges with ink, and layered it onto the card front.  Finally, I added three, very pale green pearls to the bottom corner.  I have to say that I really love how this card turned out.  I think I'm going to use it as a birthday card with an appropriate sentiment inside.
