Birthday Card Using Aurora Wings Lilac Sprite

Hello friends!  It looks like summer has arrived in Southern CA.  It is supposed to be in the 90's today.  I know some of you are still having snow and cold temperatures; so try to stay safe and dry.  

I started a new Facebook VIP group and would love for you to check it out and join.  See link below.

I would love for you to join my group.  A place to share ideas, creations and more. Click above.

I don't seem to have enough time to create much lately.  I did finally get time to create with Aurora Wings "Lilac Sprite"; which is a free digi to celebrate their 4th anniversary for the Aurora Wings Blog.  I love this sweet image.  Mitzi creates such lovely images. 

Not available in store; few days left - available on blog for members.
Click on name of Sprite to take you to the current challenge with free Sprite.
