Mid-Challenge Inspiration Post for Challenge #65

The party continues! Welcome to the Mid-Challenge Inspiration post for our 65th challenge, hosted by the Stella Team and to the special party celebrating our 4th Anniversary here on the AWCB!  We again thank all of our friends and supporters both new and old.  As you know, our theme for this challenge is the ever popular Sprite Delight (V!).

Just in case you missed our "party favor", here she is again. Meet the adorable new Lilac Sprite, Mitzi's gift to you for the duration of the challenge.

Left click on the image, then right click and save to your computer.  Feel free to copy and save Lilac Sprite to use in this challenge and future projects.  You are not required to use Lilac Sprite in this challenge but we would love to see her. Regular copyright rules apply.  Do not post this image on your Blog, Pinterest, etc. or share with friends.  Please refer them to the AW Challenge Blog so they may download their own copy.

Entries using other company's images will be removed without warning.

And if that isn't enough of an incentive to join the party, we're also DOUBLING OUR PRIZES for this challenge to include:

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.  Thank you for your understanding.  

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 #65 in the subject line, and I will add it to our Aurora Wings Submissions Blog, where it can be viewed and commented on, and to the Linky so you can participate here. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
