This challenge is all about those adorable, whimsical little creatures that Mitzi has been sharing with us, the Sprites!  Speaking of sharing with us, Mitzi has graciously extended this coupon code until the 20th of March!

As if that isn’t enough, Mitzi has created the lovely little Lilac Sprite as a special gift for you!! There’s no excuse not to get your Sprite on, with this fabulous freebie offer 🙂  Just a warning, one is never enough of these little darlings!! 🙂

As proof of my last statement, here is my inspiration project for the challenge.

Yup, just couldn’t stop at one…or two…..lol.  I’ve used the following Sprites for my tuxedo fold card.  Hydrangea Sprite; available at Aurorawings.com (png) or (jpg) and at Aurora Wings Etsy store (png) or (jpg). And the following, found exclusively at the Aurorawings.com store: Carnation Sprite (png) or (jpg); Daffodil Sprite (png) or (jpg); Tiger Lily Sprite (png) or (jpg) and Marigold 2 Sprite (png) or (jpg).  I colored up this garden of Sprites with my Copic and SN markers, then fussy cut them out.  I assembled the tuxedo fold card base from a pale mauve CS, then layered over it with die cut white lattice pieces.  A Cheery Lynn flower and butterfly border, some Tattered Lace die cut butterflies and a scalloped edge were added to make it look like the Sprites were frolicking in a whimsical garden.  I added some glitter to all the butterflies to give the project a wee bit of sparkle.  Here’s a few close ups to show a bit more of the detail 🙂

  1. WOW! Is this ever GORGEOUS, Susan! The fold and fabulous die cuts remind me of a beautiful garden gate. Once you enter, magic abounds with colorful, whimsical flower Sprites at play. Fabulous work on each and every one. Truly inspirational. Love, love, LOVE! xxD

  2. You always go full out with your projects, Susan! You always deliver with a ‘Wow!’ factor, and this gorgeous tuxedo fold project is no exception. I love how you went white-on-white on everything other than the colorful Sprites – great details are added without making anything look too busy. Each of the Sprites is wonderfully colored with each having a distinct personality. Thank you so much for this awesome inspiration for our Sprite Delight V challenge at Aurora Wings today! Mitzi xxx
