Suzanne gave us a wonderful challenge over on the SCACD blog for this week – alter an item and use Aurora – FUN!!! i decided it was the perfect time to make a name plaque for Hollyn’s new room:

the *theme* of the room is a garden tea party and OF COURSE Aurora is the perfect guest! i used Aurora with tulips:
along with her adorable friend Silly Pilly:
Hollyn Loves it! i stamped both images with memento, colored with copics and accented them with a bit of spica glitter pen – it is not showing in the pics but you can see it despite three coats of mod podge! i cut them both out using Labels 9 nestibilities and edged them with ink & a foam ink blending tool. after sealing it i added a flower skittle to the snail and a couple prima flowers with some cute little rosebuds on top that Susana just got in! these little rosebuds are sturdy and really perk up your primas!!
the lettering and die cuts are done with the ashlyn’s alphabet & paisley cricut cartridges:
 how seriously cute are they????
Silly Pilly is only available with the FULL sheet of Aurora images – they are all so cute it would be hard to narrow it down anyway!  Be sure to stop over at Susana’s Custom Art & Cards (SCACD) and check out all of the wonderful stamps and other products she has in stock!
i hope your week is off to a great start!!!

better blog siggy
