Try It Out Tuesday 52 - Aurora Takes a Break

One of life's greatest pleasures for me has always been reading. Sitting in a chair in my home and going to all different countries around the world or even into an imagined world has saved me from losing my mind at times! Give me a good story that I just can't put down and well, that's my piece of heaven on earth.

Suzanne challenged us to create a book mark this week for our challenge over at Follow Your Heart, the blog for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and I decided on another of our sweet Aurora stamps, Aurora Takes a Break, designed by our ever talented Victoria Case. I just adore this collection!

I colored her with copics and added just a bit of stickles. I colored her like my little strawberry sprite! I love her little green boots! I added a bit of my new K&Company paper and tried to keep her a bit light and inviting. What do you think?

You know me, I had to show off her sweet face! Make sure to stop over at Follow Your Heart and see what my Design Team partners have come up with for you! I'd love to see what you would create for a bookmark! Let's go take a break and read!

Card Ingredients:

Aurora Taking a Break by Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, copics, Stickles, Kaisercraft Pearls, ribbon, EK Success corner punch, nestabilities

So cute! What punch/nestie did you use in the corner?

I agree about a good book. It is the best escape there is. I am happy my 8-yr old is learning to love it as much as I do.

Take care,

What a beautiful bookmark, I love the colors and sparkle. I too love to read, this would look so beautiful tucked in one's favorite book :)
