Aurora Wings #5 and Punk You Girl #14 Challenges

A lot of fun joining in the challenges this month.  Today I have made a flower notebook featuring a wonderfully digi stamp from Aurora Wings.  This project will be entered into the current challenge, #5 Sprite Delight - Use an Aurora Wings Sprite.   I have chosen the Day of the Dead Marigold Sprite and was sooo happy with how she turned out.  I only hope that my coloring is acceptable since the inspiration and talent of the Design Team over there is beyond fabulous. 

I have also decided to enter this notebook into the Punk You Girl Challenge.  I was not sure, but I do believe that they are now accepting all kinds of projects and not only cards.  If I am mistaken, please forgive.  The Challenge #14 is Skeletons and Secrets.  I may be reaching with the Day of the Dead sprite, but hey if you don't enter, you don't win.  Please check out their Design Team, who also have put out their best for the rest of us.
