Challenge # 14 Flowers

Welcome to our 14th challenge here at Aurora Wings.  Spring has definitely sprung in most of the northern hemisphere so we've chosen the theme of FLOWERS this time, in the image, papers or embellishments.

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 Ann-Marie Johansson.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EDT Monday April 20th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday May 16th 2015. Entries posted prior to April 20th 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 "Mommy and Me" contest currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through April 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 #14  in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx

Challenge 13 Winners

Mitzi and the team wants to thank you for the fabulous response to our Anything goes Challenge. Our final total was 123 entries.  Unfortunately this was after eliminating those who did not follow our rules.  No matter what the challenge is, we REQUIRE a hand colored image and although they are welcome, if you enter with a non Aurora Wings image, that's it!  You're done.  Multiple entries (up to 3) must ALL use Aurora Wings images.  I really hate being the bad guy, so PLEASE READ the rules that are provided at the beginning of each challenge.  So now for the good news!

The ARTIST'S CHOICE AWARD ($20 GC and Badge) chosen by Mitzi from among the entrants using Aurora Wings images goes to

The RANDOM WINNER ($20 GC) goes to

And the Top 3 ($10 GC and Badge) in numerical order as they appeared in the challenge,
chosen by the Design Team from ALL the entries goes to
