Anemone Sprite

It has been just so much fun to be the Guest Designer for Mitzi Sato-Wiuff and during the GREAT Aurora Wings 4th Anniversary Celebration. And to be one of your hostesses of the Sprite Delight V Challenge (#65)
Seeing all of your amazing Sprite projects is so inspiring and so much fun.  Congratulations to each participant for all the love and effort you shared as your little Sprite joined the Party this month.

The Anemone Sprite is my final project as Guest Designer.   The card is a Standing Double Z fold card. The top of the cardfront is royal purple metallic paper with the elegant WPlus9 Design Studio's Tossed Floral Background Steel Rule Die (WP9-D205) die cut from SU White Shimmer Paper.
Rather than a floral hinged front closure on the front which I considered, I decided to create a ribbon "belly band" of sparkling organza ribbon.  Silk flowers and pearl stems are centered on the bow.  When the card is opened and displayed there is room in the "pillars" for a special sentiment sentiment, or a little note to the recipient.  The Anemone Sprit, almost fullsize is colored in mixed media...blended watercolors, colorburst paint, Prismacolor Pencils, copics, glitter pens. The centers of each Anemone is touched with Tonic Nuvo Drops.

  1. What a stunning card, Priss! I'm a big fan of purple-with-white combo, so I find this double z-fold card of yours irresistible. Just so gorgeous inside and out! Really love the way you colored the Anemone Sprite in shades of blue and purple. The blended colors are beautiful here. Thank you for having been such an awesome Guest Designer of our Challenge 65 at AWCB. You have gone above and beyond what's normally expected of a GD by treating us to multiple inspirations and showering the challenge participants with your loving and supportive comments. Thank you again! Mitzi xxx
