I decided to use this beautiful Mushroom Flower Sprite from Aurora Wings for the challenge this time. I think she is just beautiful. She goes perfectly with the my favorite quote. I love it so much that I say it to my children all of the time “Make the most of yourself, because that is all there is of you.” It is by Emerson.
Well as you can see I have a new look on the site. Sadly when the change happened all my content was deleted.
This ended up in a major sad face and a lot of crying. I know, I know most of you will say… why cry it was just a blog people are out there starving or dying from cancer. Yes, I know they are and I pray for them every day with my kids. But this was almost 4 years of my work, hard work, just gone… it is a sad heartbreak.
I envisioned fall leaves around the outside of the poem but then quickly realized just how big the poem was and how big my leaves where. So, I went ahead and made my card 5.5 x 5.5 so that we could still have room on the sides to see the great patterned paper in the background.
I have a hard time believing that I did not use any Copic markers on this card at all. I actually used an old ink pad that I had.

I loved this little Pierrot Sprite the moment I saw him. Although, never got the time to color him. When Mitzi from
Aurora Wings hosted an Orange, Black and one other color challenge, I went directly to him. I could not wait to color this little Pierrot Sprite. The only other color I used besides black, white, and orange, was the pink for his cheeks.
This was such a fun challenge to do. I love the patterned paper behind him along with the beautiful black roses that have been dipped in autumn glitter. The nice thing about the glitter on the background paper is that it will not come off.
I also have put a bit of an embossed pattern on the orange paper as well.
