 "Hi, I'm Nicola. I'm from South England, but I now live in Canada with my husband and two children. I recently became a Market Partner with Monat and I'm also the session rep for my daughter's pre-school class. I've been doing all sorts of crafts from a young age, but my biggest passion now is colouring and paper-crafting.

I am super thrilled to have been asked to guest design for Aurora Wings this month. I have loved Mitzi's images since I discovered them and always enjoy entering the challenges.

When I was told the theme, I decided to go all-out and I made seven ATCs to represent the whole rainbow!"

Stunning inspirations from the Design Team. Thank you for your wonderful challenges. This one was a challenge for me; because I wanted to color all the flowers. It was hard to leave them black and white. LOL! Have a fabulous day! Hugs, Gloria
