Challenge #16 - Sprite Delight II

Welcome to Challenge #16 here at Aurora Wings.  Our challenge this month is one of our more popular ones, sure to delight you all.  Welcome to Sprite Delight II!  We want to see those adorable magical creatures on your projects and there are plenty to choose from.

As a special incentive, a select number of Sprites will be discounted at 50% off for the duration of the challenge.  Check out the "SALE digis" section of the AW Etsy Store.  WooHoo!

PLEASE REMEMBER OUR RULES.  It breaks my heart when I have to delete a gorgeous creation for lack of compliance, but because we have a random winner, that's the only fair thing to do.  Those using an AURORA WINGS IMAGE may enter up to THREE times, but those using a stamp from another company may only enter ONCE.  ALL creations must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp to be eligible.

Our prizes each month will include:

1 (one) Artist's Choice Award Winner to be selected from entries using Aurora Wings digis ($20 GC and Badge)

1 (one) Random Winner ($20 GC)

Top 3 Winners to be chosen by the DT ($10 GC and Badge)

We are thrilled to have a Guest Designer joining us this week. Please welcome Denise Goeldner.

We also wish to welcome Karola Geiger who has now joined the Challenge Blog DT from the AW Showcase DT.  We're so excited to have her!

Now on to the fabulous inspiration by the team.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EDT Monday June 15th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday July  18th 2015. Entries posted prior to June 15th will be deleted. All entries must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp on their completed project to be eligible. Please follow the chosen theme. ONE entry per person if not using an Aurora Wings image, THREE entry limit if ALL entries include an Aurora Wings stamp. You may enter your project in as many other challenges as desired. Please link to your POST address, NOT your BLOG address and link back to the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. We would greatly appreciate you removing word verification and switching to comment moderation if you fear spam. In fairness to all, those not following the rules will be deleted. Thank you for your understanding and please have fun. We look forward to your fabulous creations.

Also, because of the difficulties we have experienced with Facebook entries, I regret that we will no longer be accepting them on the Challenge Blog.  I'm so sorry, but we do have our "Anything Goes" FB contest currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through June 30th.  Thank you for your understanding. 

However, if you do not have a blog and would still like to enter this challenge,  please email me at donnamundinger(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, a picture of your entry and Aurora Wings Challenge #16  in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
