Christmas Card Using Aurora Wings Garland Sprite

Hello friends!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  My husband and I were able to spend Thanksgiving in MO with some of my family.  It has been about 8 yrs. since we were there for Thanksgiving; so it was a special time for all of us.  I wish my middle son, Jeffrey would have been there with his family; to make it complete; but he had to work. 

I just finished a card using Aurora Wings Garland Sprite.  It was a freebie for those who participated in Aurora Wings Facebook Celebration.  It is such a sweet image; that I had to use it as soon as I got home from our Thanksgiving trip.  Today is the last day to enter it in the Holiday Sprite Facebook Challenge.

I didn't want to color with the traditional colors of green and red; so I used pink, dark and light greens; plus a dark blue.   I thought it turned out really cute.  I love this HOTP Christmas Lace paper pack that I have had for quite a while.  I hope you enjoy my card.
