Beautiful Anya!

Evening all. Another beautiful day here in Yorkshire. So to reflect the sunny weather we've been having I though I would make a lovely bright sunny card! I used the sketch from this weeks friday sketchers, love it!

I coloured the beautiful Anya in with my koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor and I used the out of bounds technique to cut her out with my rectangular nesties. I inked around the edges with my distress inks and a sponge. The CS is from coredinations and the papers are a mixture of sweet nothings from papermania and Bloom and Grow from MME. I took a trip to The Range yesterday and saw that they have started to stock these delish MME papers so I just had to buy another 6x6 pack, well it would have been rude not to!! Lol! The sentiment is a freebie from papermania, the flowers are prima and the pearl brads are also from papermania {my absolute favourite craft item at the minute}! I also added a touch of glossy accents to her headband and shoes to finish, not sure if you can pick it up on the pic though!

I really enjoyed making this card and just love this combination of colours. I wouldn't have though they would have matched but I have been left pleasantly surprised!

Well I've had a busy day at work so I'm off to have a relaxing bath and then an early night! Hope you are all well!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
