Sprite Delight with Aurora Wings

Hello! I am excited to be sharing my second official project on the Aurora Wings Challenge DT. Challenge #65 is "Sprite Delight." The Sprites are the reason why I fell in love with Aurora Wings in the first place. They are all so adorable, detailed, and expressive. Well, I recently got a Silhouette Cameo, and as I went through my Sprite collection for this challenge and saw the Pineapple Sprite, I knew I just had to use my Cameo to cut out a pineapple card.

I colored this sweet Sprite with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then found cardstock in my stash to coordinate with the colors I used. Then I did a search online and found this PERFECT free Pineapple Mini Book SVG file by Kim Watson to cut the card out. It was exactly what I was looking for! The "Greetings" I created myself with a font I had. I'd like to note, that I cut a second piece of the solid background, so that I could create my card back with it. I just scored it about 1/4" from the top, and attached it to the front.

To embellish the card further, I used some sequins from Doodles Paper Playground's Test Your Luck Sparkle Blends. I adhered them with On Point Glue from Imagine.

This was such a fun card to create, and I love that it came out how I had hoped. Below you will find the current coupon code for Aurora Wings, which is good until 3/20/18. Take advantage of these great discounts! And, please don't forget to visit the Aurora Wings Blog to see what the rest of the team created for the new Sprite Delight challenge. I hope you'll play along! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

How adorable, Alison! Your pineapple card is spectacular and shows off that sweet Pineapple Sprite to full advantage. Looks like you're having a ball with your new toy. Lovely coloring and the sequins add the perfect touch. Beautiful work! xxD
I love this bright and joyful pineapple card, Alison! Your coloring of the Pineapple Sprite is gorgeous, and I love the fun sparkly detail created by the sequins. The photo set-up is awesome, too! The whole thing just makes me smile every time I look at it. Thank you so much for this delightful inspiration for our Sprite Delight V challenge at Aurora Wings today! Mitzi xxx
