Aurora Wings Stella Design Team Blog Hop: Show Your Style

Welcome Friends!! Both new and old!! I'm so excited to be a part of this Design Team!! Aurora Wings are my favorite digis to work with and I am sooo honored to have been picked to be a part of this team!! Today we are gonna take you on a little trip around the world to introduce you to our new Design Team! Let's get started!!
I'm Sara and I have been playing with Aurora Wings digis for about a year. I have done some cards with her images but I feel like they are just to beautiful and intricate not to turn into something more! I have a set of 4 of them framed and hanging on the wall in my scrapbooking room! I have done a few mixed media peices with them and simply framed some as gifts because they are just so gorgeous on thier own! Today I'm going to show you a mixed media peice which is totally what I would consider my style! You are actually going to see a total of 3 similar peices from me in the next few months because I love the idea and I have some gifts to make. 
Todays is for my mother in law who loves Orchids. She grows them in her dining room! As some of you know the economy here in Canada is in the pooper which means this stay at home mommy cannot stay at home full time anymore. But with hubby working our of town for weeks on a time it makes finding child care tricky especially since we live in the country. Enter my Mother in Law! She as well as my mom and my best friend have been amazing about coming out and watching the girls in the evenings so I can go to work. We could not do so many things without thier help so I always like to make little thank you gifts for them throughout the year to let them know how much we appreciate all thier help! 
This is my Mother in Laws:
A beautiful Orchid filled shadow box!! The quote inside says: "When two friends understand each other totally the words are soft and strong like an orchids perfume" -Martin Luther King Jr.

This is Orchid Fairy by Aurora Wings colored with copics. Isn't it just a stunning image? Mitzi does such an amazing job giving you gorgeous details to work with!!

All pieced together ready to go in the shadow box. I just love how the image still stands out on its own even with all those flowers around it!

Materials used:
Fake Orchids and greenery from Michaels
Tim Holtz stick pins
Metal Butterfly
