Aurora with Cake - I'm Enchanted!

Welcome to our Blog Hop to celebrate the release of our sweet new Aurora collection from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! I just know you're going to go gaga over this sweet little sprite as much as we all have! If you've come to my blog from Carolyn's blog, then you're on the right track! If not, our hop starts at Jen's blog so go start with her! I'd hate for any of you to miss out on the absolutely fabulous creations my designing buddies have come up with for you! And now, I just can't wait for you to meet Aurora! Have you ever seen or hoped for something that was the essence of pure joy, love and happiness? Well, lay eyes on this sweet face and I dare you not to be enchanted!



I'd like to introduce you to our newest, most adorable living, breathing, sweetest sprite, Aurora, who is now living at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and designed by the ever so talented illustrator, Victoria Case! Doesn't she just have the happiest look on her face? I saw her and fell in love! When I saw her all dressed up in her little petals, a poppy and sunflower came to mind! I was exploring around my new apartment complex and the puppy park has a huge poppy bush in front of it. Oh the colors were just brilliant and vibrant and I knew I wanted to do some type of card using those colors! When I got close, I noticed they had just a bit of yellow and a tint of brown around it so I decided that my first Aurora was going to be my poppy sprite!



She's colored with copics and a little bit of Smooch here and stickles there and a gold pearl on her collar and a butterfly in her hair! I love this sketch from Papertake Weekly and think I'll be using it a lot!

Now head on over to Suzanne's blog and see what gorgeous inspiration she has in store for you! Like I said earlier, I dare you to be enchanted!

Card Ingredients:

Aurora with Cake by Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, copics, Sugar Rush paper from BasicGrey, ribbon, brushed rhinestones, Smooch, Stickles, Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder, Dress Up Button, MS fancy lace punch
