Good Luck card Using Aurora Wings Shamrock Sprite

Hello friends! I hope you are doing well.  It has been crazy weather across the United States.  We have had a lot of rain in Southern CA; which is a good thing; as long as it doesn't cause mud slides.  

I hadn't colored anything for a while; since I had a bad cold for over two weeks; with a major cough.  It took a long time to get over this one.  I can't keep up with all new Aurora Wings adorable digital images Mitzi is creating.  I just finished this one today; and she came out with three more sweet Sprites.  

I had fun coloring this Aurora Wings Shamrock Sprite.  Isn't she precious!!  Again, my purples do not photograph correctly.  The dress is purple and green; but it matches all the other purples around it in real life.  LOL!  The inside is also same purples as front; but they look different.  The Sequins are also purple, not the blue shown in photo.

I just finally give up and used the best one available; as purples just don't look good when I take pictures of them.  I found the quote online; but no name associated with it.  

Her dress is purple and green and matches the cardstock and papers.
Purple just doesn't photograph well for me.

  1. Lovely card, thanks for sharing with Crafting from the Heart!

  2. Yes, Gloria! You got it right for Bingo and what an adorable card. I feel your pain on photographing purple. I even go so far as to take snaps of my coloring with different papers to see how they photograph before I make it. Purples are a PITA but you card looks just lovely, even if it's not quite representative of the actual hues. Gorgeous coloring and fabulous design. Love it both inside and out. Thanks so much for playing Bingo with us at Aurora Wings. xxD

  3. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! What a gorgeous card, Gloria! I can relate to your struggle trying to capture the purple just right with your camera. I've noticed that if I get the green right, then the purple or red is way off, and vice versa when I edit photos, too. But I LOVE the purple with green palette you used on the Shamrock Sprite. It's lush and beautiful both inside and outside on your card. Thank you for playing Bingo with us at AWCB! Mitzi xx
