The Poppy Sprite--California Dreaming.

Joining the Sprite Delight V Challenge at  Aurora Wings  4th Anniversary Celebration this month is the Poppy Sprite.  This playful little sprite dancing in California Poppies.   The Cup of Gold  poppy is really very orange--but has True Gold at its heart. This Poppy grows throughout the state covering the landscape in gold--- and is "The Golden State's"  official flower. Gold is the state mineral, and gold is one of the two state colors (with blue). This sprite is colored in Prismacolor Pencils and matted onto a photo of California Poppies.  Accented with wink of stella and gold stickles, she's framed in a distressed edge oval.

Won't you come play with the Sprites this Month in Challenge #65 .  I have so enjoyed being the March Guest Designer for this very special Celebration and look forward to seeing your Sprites' magic.   We just have 13 more days of this DELIGHT-full challenge!  


  1. I love seeing the Poppy Sprite colored as a beautiful California Poppy, Priss! The orange and yellow look wonderful with the highly energetic cheerfulness. Always enjoy reading the info on the flower on your blog posts, too. Thank you so much for going above and beyond as a GD in Challenge 65 at AWCB with another lovely inspiration today! Mitzi xxx
