Bluebell Sprite

     Have you ever gone on a shopping spree for images, bought several and then had one get lost in the shuffle?  That's the story behind this darling, little, bluebell sprite by AuroraWings.  I bought several sprites at the same time and for some reason this is the one I've never used.  Sorry, little sprite.  :-D


     The image is colored with my ProMarkers and framed with a leftover negative from a die cut I used on another project.  That scalloped circle, the outer edge of a doily cut (Cheery Lynn), was just too pretty to throw away and it worked perfectly here.

     I added a strip of dp (DCWV "Basics" stack) to one side and wrapped it with ribbon.  The leaves and little flowers were in my stash, again cuts left over from a previous project and the dies for those were Cheery Lynn and Memory Box.

     I tied a bow and added glitter to the flowers and the bow.  The sentiment is printed, then hand cut before matting and adhering to the card.  The different layers and design elements give some great texture to the card.

Is that a blue card I see!!! You already know I love it. A precious image and beautiful card! I have had images get lost before - and sadly, when my computer crashed the other day I lost every single one I'd ever bought! I'm pretty sure I've learned out to say "backup" now!
