Green & Sketch Challenge_Aurora Wings and the Pineapple Sprite

I created this card using the Pineapple Sprite by Mitzi Sato Wiuff available in her stores.  The sprite is worked with Prismacolor Pencils, Wink of Stella in various colors and glaze pens in green and yellow.  The leaves are from Botanical Bloom stamp and die set by  SU and the designer paper circles are from the coordinating  Botanical Bloom paper.  This card is created for both the March "Green" challenge on Facebook and the Sketch Challenge at Aurora Wings

 Detail of the sprite above.

For centuries the Pineapple has been recognized as a traditional expression hospitality and welcome throughout the world. This fruit symbolizes warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitality, and in the Southern US, you will see the pineapple everywhere.    

The fruit holds the strong antioxident, Vitamin C.  It is a Bromelian thought to combat the formation of certain cancer cells.   It is very acidic, so if you are cutting up very much pineapple, you should wear gloves.  Try placing fresh pineapple spears in a bath of Creme de Menthe!  Oh--La-La 
The principal pollinator of the pineapple's beautiful flower is a hummingbird.  Seed formation needs pollination, but the presence of seeds harms the quality of the fruit. In Hawaii where pineapple is grown on an agricultural scale, importation of hummers is prohibited for this reason.  


  1. Gorgeous greens and a very creative take on the sketch, Priss. Love how you've showcased Pineapple Sprite with the lovely die cuts and distressing and found your pineapple facts very interesting. Thanks so much for joining our Sketch Challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD

  2. Love this striking green and yellow card, Priss! The distressed edges give such a distinct look, and your coloring of the Sprite is just gorgeous! I LOVE pineapples, so I appreciate your putting the info about them. I think their aroma is one of the most heavenly in nature. Thank you for playing at Aurora Wings! Mitzi xx
