Easter Wishes Card using Aurora Wings

Aurora Wings Showcase Blog

Hey Everyone!! Mitzi from Aurora Wings put a shout out for a little help with this weeks showcase blog so I get to help introduce you all to this adorable "Spring Sprite"! She was such a little darling to color up!! Aren't those little ears just the cutest thing ever?!
Image may contain: drawing
So sweet ey?! I am hoping that we get to see some of those flowers and butterflies outside our windows really soon!! I am ready for some color and some warmth!!!

I colored this little cutie and turned her into an Easter Card for one of my little ones... and if they get their bums in gear you will get to see their versions of this image too! I printed them off onto 5x7 cards for them to color along with me but they are taking their time! LOL
So for now I will get show you mine:
I used my Tim Holtz distress inks to create each of the papers-- easter paper is not really something I keep kicking around ya know? But I think this worked out perfectly!! Nice and soft, subtle and lets the image just pop right out!!
I also used the sketch from the current challenge on the Aurora Wings Challenge blog!! Come on over and check that out too!!
Now if you must have this new little "Spring Sprite" you can pop over to the Aurora Wings Etsy Store or the newly refurbished Aurora Wings Website and grab her.

Now, that's all for me today! I must be off and get ready for that Dragon Birthday Party you've been hearing about from me! See you all next time!!

PS So when I originally wrote this blog post I put a little blurb about how Mitzi would likely offer a discount code for the weekend, as she usually does. But then I second guessed myself thinking "But what if she doesn't? Then people will have thier hopes up for nothing" So I deleted that part... and then 12hrs before the post goes live we got a COUPON CODE for Aurora Wings!! Heck yes!! Leet's do that!! So here you go everyone:

And I promised I would show you what my little people did with this image as well!! The littlest was not so interest in coloring this week., but the big one is really get into it!! Check it out:
Not bad for 6 years old ey? I might be bias though!! LOL

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks so much for popping by!!!


  1. Stunning coloring by both you Pyper gals on this adorable new image, Sara! Love that you've used our sketch from the challenge Blog with the cool embossed strips and the lovely pastel background you've created. Spring Sprite works perfectly with the sketch. And I can see you have a budding artist in your midst. FAbulous work by your 6 year old and I love that she's added hearts around this sweet new image. So fun! xxD

  2. Thanks for helping me out on a short notice, Sara! Can't believe how fast you got this all done - including the post! lol Seriously though, love your adorable pastel card with the new Sprite! Didn't realize that you made that pretty background paper with pastel colors yourself. It really makes your lovely coloring of the Sprite come forward and take center stage. But watch out, Mom! Your 6-year-old already shows a fantastic color sense. Love lime green paired with pink and yellow. And I love how she gave each butterfly their own color, too. Thank you so much for two beautiful inspirations for today's new release showcase at AW! Mitzi xxx
