You're Fabulous Anya!!

Morning all. It's my DO today, but my brain still thinks I've got to get up for work hence why I'm up so early! Oh well now I'm up I can make the most of my day and get on with some crafting!! I made this card last night using the last of my Miss Anya stamps, I've made a card with each of them now, not sure which my favourite is though! It's so hard to choose, they're all so cute! I am going to enter this card into two of this weeks challenges. Firstly I have used the sketch from this weeks PTW challenge. It's a sketch set by Dawny and I love it! I will definately be using this one again! The colours I have used meet this week colour create challenge to use, Tan, sky blue and ecru. Now I wasn't eactly sure what colour ecru was when I started making this card so I don't think I have followed the colours to the letter but I hope the DT will forgive me and let me enter anyway! :-)



I have coloured Anya with distress inks and whispers pens before adding some gloss to her headband and bobbles {this also meets with the extra colour create challenge to add gloss glitter or glaze}. The DP is BG Granola. The blue paper has been embossed with swiss dots. Flower is from my stash. I cut out one of the flower motifs from the BG paper and added to the center of the flower with a pearl brad from my stash. Raffia ribbon was given to me by my mum, she brought me this back when she went to Germany last year and this is it's first outing!! The sentiment is from Studio G.

I am really pleased with how this card turned out. I would never have normally put these colours together, so I am pleased I decided to go with this weeks colour create challenge. I suppose that's what the challenges are all about, trying different things and stepping out of your comfort zone!

Well I'm going to have some breakfast and then retreat to my craft room for a few hours!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day everyone!

Hugs, Vicky -x-

I'd say ecru is a rich, deep cream Vicky, so you're spot on! I love your card and I think this Miss Anya is my fave of the three.

Fab card, Vicky. Love each of the Miss Anya cards you've done. Like you, I can't choose which is my favourite (although I have to confess I haven't got around to using all of mine yet, tut tut).
