Hi there 🙂  It must be a Saturday afternoon, shortly before the close of an Aurora Wings challenge??? Here I am, with my last minute entry 🙂  I’ve been working on it, here and there, for a while, but finally had the time today to get everything to “gel” properly on paper 🙂  This time, the challenge theme is “Crop It”….which I thought was so cool.  I used the image Elven Princess.  Her eyes are so mesmerizing, that they had to be the focal point!! The gorgeous flowers at the bottom of the image were perfect for a border for this card, as well!  I colored the relevant parts of the image with SN and Copic markers, then fussy cut the flowers out.   I found a sentiment that seemed to fit the whole feel of the card perfectly, and printed it out on the top layer, then placed the flowers under it.  I used a curvy cutter….from Creative Memories, to cut the curved pieces that allow the eyes to show through, then, after placing the pieces, edged them in small adhesive rhinestones. I added a few more rhinestones, and matted the whole thing in a pale blue…..then called it finished – just in time 😉

I’d like to enter this into:
