Aurora Wings Challenge #14

Aurora Wings Challenge #14

Hi everyone, I hope that you've all had a lovely weekend and are all 
looking forward to the week ahead. I spent my weekend in the garden 
getting everything ready for the summer, I also had some crafty time 
too, I made this criss-cross card and matching pillow box as my 
Aurora Wings DT make for our new challenge which starts today 
and the theme this time is ~ 

Card Recipe
Two 6"x 6" ivory cards, Craft And You Wedding 3 Design Papers, Gold Satin card, 
Pink Bazzill Card, Vintage Ivory Lace, Antique Rose Embossed Ribbon, Wooden 
Laser Cut Frame (WOC) Rosebuds (WOC) Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, 
Ivory Pearls and Sakura Gelly Roll 

The beautiful image is one of Mitzi Sato-Wiuff's and this was the very first image 
I purchased from her Aurora Wings Etsy Shop and ever since that day I have been 
in love with her images and artwork. You can find "ORCHID FAIRY" Here 

The papers I used are from Crafty and You Design and the one I used is called 
My Wedding 3 and they are absolutely stunning

I coloured "ORCHID FAIRY" using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers and I 
then highlighted her wings with Sakura Gelly Roll.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges 


  1. What a breathtaking project, Lorraine! Truly elegant beyond belief. Your love for the image certainly shows in your amazing coloring and fabulous details. Love, love, LOVE! xxD

  2. Oh my goodness! These are lovely! I love the criss-cross fold, but have not been very successful at completing one (I think I'm just too critical of my own work!). Awesome coloring, too! Thanks for playing in our neighborhood at 613 Avenue Create.

  3. Lorraine, I LOVE the way you colored the Orchid Fairy on this gorgeous card! I was reminded just how partial to this color palette after a long time - these ivory and wine/dusty rose was my wedding colors. XD I love the old world charm and elegance you capture with the lace and rose paper. So, so beautiful!! I love having you on my DT at Aurora Wings!! ^_^

    Big hugs,
    Mitzi xxx
