Aurora Wings Cactus Sprite

This little Cactus Sprite is created for the Aurora  Wings Challenge # 27  "Say it with Flowers." It is colored with Prismacolor Pencils, then accented rhinestones,  and with Gelly Roll Clear Star detail and "Summer" Flower Soft accenting the blossoms.  The edges of the photo mat, picture of a real cactus flower are trimmed with a black line sticker. The mat behind that is Stampin Up, Watermelon Wonder paper, on bone cardstock.  Black braid that I edged in Flower Soft is across the bottom of the card.  The sentiment on this card is photoshopped into the blog post, because I haven't decided what sentiment stamp or sticker I am going to ultimately want on that 5x7 card.  I live in the desert and know that this little sprite will see many applications.    Some of my other Cactus Flower photos are in a Flickr Album
