Aurora Wings Challenge #70: Sketch

Hello! Today I am sharing a card for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is to use the sketch provided by Mitzi (see below). I opted to once again use an adorable Sprite for my project, and this time it is the Cherry Sprite. You can find her HERE on the Aurora Wings site, and HERE on Etsy. Here is the sketch...
And here is my take on the sketch.

I started off by coloring my Sprite, as I always do. The colors I use then help me choose my papers. I decided to use my new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to create my circles.  I simply cut the same circle twice, out of two papers, and inlaid the polka dot paper into the green, so it's flat.

The hardest part for me on this card was arranging my sequins, which was a combination of Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, and a few (the glittery gold ones) that I had gotten from Ink Road Stamps. For my sentiment, I used a lovely "smile" from Honey Bee Stamps.

It's been a while since I've done a sketch challenge, and I didn't realize how much I missed doing them. I hope you will play along with this Aurora Wings Challenge. Please be sure to visit the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Absolutely precious, Alison! Such an adorable Sprite you've chosen and I love how the dots on your die cuts echo the dotty DP. The deep green showcases not only your beautiful coloring, but the amazing array of sequins, as well. Love that bold sentiment, too. FAbulous work! xxD
EEEEP!!! This is adorable!!! Love love love the colors that you've used to showcase this sweet Sprite!! Your selection of sequins, and their placement, is perfect!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga
