Birthday Card Using Aurora Wings Happy Pierrot Sprite with CTMH Make Waves Paper & Sequins

Hello friends!   I hope everyone is having a great day and making time to craft.  It takes me quite a while to color and create a card; but it is so much fun and so beneficial to my health.  I know a lot of you have health issues; and crafting/creating makes you forget your pain/issues for a while.  If I could just create all day everyday; I think I would feel even better.  LOL!  Too many other things seem to demand my attention.

I wanted to color this adorable clown Sprite as soon as it came out; but too many other things going on.  I finally finished it.  It is Aurora Wings Happy Pierrot SpriteIt is the sweetest image and so much fun to color.  I have been having a very painful week; but managed to get it colored and created in time for the current Aurora Wings Anything Goes challenge.  I think it turned out really cute.  Aurora Wings has several new images that I am sure you will love.  Check them out on Aurora Wings Showcase Blog.

I originally wanted this for my great-grandson, Bryr; who will be 2 yrs. in April.  I realized it has flowers; so I switched it to my granddaughter.  She is Bryr's mother; so he will still get to enjoy it.  Her birthday is also in April.   I thought she might like something besides the girls I am always sending her.  LOL!
