Meet Miss"Aurora" from the new release - "Aurora Collection" by Victoria Case for SCACD !!! Doesn't she look like she enjoys life? She is so happy, caring and fun loving. !! This image is Aurora takes a break. She just loves sitting and enjoying the things around her.

Today is the day of the new release and blog hop. Hopefully, you arrived to my blog from Aud's. If not, please start at the beginning here, then hop to all the DT's blog and be in for some fabulous creations showcasing Aurora. From my blog you will continue on to Anki's.

My image is colored with Copics and then I used my Spica pens and Stickles to add some glitz. I cut out the flowers on her shoes and popped them up for a little extra dimension. The border was made using my MS punch and to finish it off I used my best tool of all - "Bow Easy" - and added a charm.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Just Us Girls #15 - Technique - stitching
Belli Challenge - Glitter or Shimmer
Creative Inspirations - Wed. - New Product
Charisma Cardz - Anything New (new stamp)
Practical Scrappers - Glitter or Bling
Allsorts Challenge - Use Brown and Pink somewhere on your card
One Stop Craft Challenge - Fancy edge or corner

The DP is by Imaginisce and is embossed and glossy. It really can stand alone without embellishments.

I really hope you have enjoyed viewing my card and will continue on to Anki's blog and enjoy the blog hop.

Thank you for taking the time to stop.
