Aurora Wings Sprite Delight V

My favorite time of year is when Aurora Wings' adorable Sprites begin to play.  This is the fifth of the 2018 Sprite Delight series.  

 SO !!!! C E L E B R A T E!!  
This New Challenge #65----is also the 4th Anniversary of AWCB.  Are you READY?  All prizes will be doubled---TWO  Artist Choice Awards, TWO Random Winners and TOP SIX---instead of Top 3.  Find all the Sprites at The Aurora Wings DIGI SHOP and join in the fun!

Aurora Wings The Lilac Sprite
The Lilac Sprite is the free Sprite with this challenge.  I am thrilled to share the shaker card that I created with her.  You'll find glitz and glimmer, feathers and photographs in this 4.25 x 5.5 card.  

The sentiment tucked behind the frame reads, 

"I hope you're my friend forever, because that is how long I'm going to need you." 

Image detail
Colored in Prismacolor Pencils, and Fantasia Watercolor Pencils
Accented with Wink of Stella, Stickles and Glitter Gel Pens.
--sequins, rhinestones, feathers and 3D crystal Glaze, 
and a photograph of lilacs in bloom.

 Lilacs symbolize new (or first) love and they come in many colors, white, pink, red, lavender and blue.  White lilacs symbolize youthful innocence and purity, blue--happiness and tranquility, magenta--love and passion, and lavender---first love.  Lilacs have long been associated with Easter, probably because they are among the first flowers of spring, and celebrate newness.  But sometimes lavendar lilacs are mournful, too.  This is probably reflecting the mood of the famous poem about Lilacs by Walt Whitman,
"When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd" 


  1. What a gorgeous card, Priss! So happy you have joined us as Guest Designer for this special challenge. Such beautiful coloring and design.
