Papertake Weekly, Anyone for Anya and Colour Create Challenges :-)

I ordered this gorgeous Anya from Bunny Zoe's Crafts a few days ago,,, along with some other bits and bobs and she dropped through my letterbox this morning, fantastic quick service :-)

I followed Dawny P's fabby sketch over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge ( I am going to be a GD for next 4 weeks !! woohoo !! :-) I am excited and nervous too ,,, the last lot of GD's were sooo talented ,, as is the permanent DT !! :-))

The theme on the Anyone for Anya Challenge is 'Paper Piecing',,, I love to do that,,, makes life easy ! :-) they have a fabulous prize this week and am keeping EVERYTHING crossed !! :-)
The Colour Create Challenge have a lovely colour challenge of RED/YELLOW/BLACK/WHITE so I made this card to fit in with that too :-)

The image was coloured with copics, 3D'd and her fur trim was made using liquid applique and glitter :-) I stickled everywhere else ;-)!

The papers are from Funky Fairys Papercrafts I used Goirjuss Gingham ,,, I love that you can change the size of this ,, perfect for paper piecing as it prints in miniature !! :-) I also used Shabby Christmas kit too ,,,, lovely ! :-)

The text is Hero Arts and the ribbon from my tidy draw !!!!!!! Spent HOURS unravelling it !! wonder how long that will last !!! I completely forgot to add a lovely snowflake charm,,, oops ,,, will do that later ,,, ! but I did remember the little bell ,,, thought I would use a real one instead of cutting around the stamped one :-)
Thanks for looking ,, please leave me a comment so you know I popped by :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)

This is fabulous Lorraine. Anya looks brilliant paper pieced and 3d'd.
I agree, the rest of the DT at Papertake are very talented, but so are you, so you have no reason at all to be nervous.
