Aurora Wings - My Lotus Sprite !!


I've managed another of Mitzi's delightful image 'Lotus Sprite'  - I have to say I struggled with this one.

I  visited a Buddhist Temple whilst I was in Sri Lanka - it just blew my away - physically, mentally and spiritually!!! The grounds themselves were amazing but in the temple itself there where large bowls of Lotus flowers and smaller bowls were of Lotus petals - beautiful pale pink with the most beautiful aroma - it says with me forever - a installs in me a feeling calm and peace.

Now, after my quick nostalgic trip to Sri Lanka I shall talk about the card - I could never re-produce the beautiful of the Lotus flowers in real live but this is the as good as I could get. I  wanted to embellish this card rather than my usual the image with a frame,  I did find some huge flowers which I took apart and took them together trying to look a little like lotus flower.
I punched a frame from Martha Stewart and added a few other bits and pieces and at the end of it I feel reasonably happy!!
