Gorgeous Anya :-)

As I am writing this I am listening to my new Susan Boyle CD :-) I think she has a wonderful voice :-) Good Luck to her ! :-)

Anyway onto my card ! I was determined to make the deadline for the Anyone For Anya Challenge ,,, I have recently bought quite a few of these lovely stamps and am wanting to ink em :-) The theme is Bling it On ,,, well I have used pearls, copic glitter pens and loads of glitter so I hope it's blingy enough ! :-)
I followed Jo's fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-) I love this sketch ,, thanks Jo :-)

The image was coloured with copics and decoupages onto coloured paper. The papers are Basic Grey 2 Scoops and coredinations ;-) The edges were all inked with black soot. I also inked the lace to dirty it up a bit too. The circle was made using a nestie and the centre was embossed with the swirl folder and glittered :-)

I used my Martha Stewart around the page punch ,,, I love these ;-) I also used a SU scallop border punch, prima flowers and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Simply the Best Sentiment set ;-)

I am also entering this into the Quixotic Challenge who are asking us to use lace :-) It is not something I use very often so this challenge made me get it out of my messy drawer :-) So thanks girls :-)
I have just found a new challenge on Lorraine's blog too so I am entering this into the Crafty Ann's Challenge blog too :-) The theme is no red or green ,,, well I have teal/turquoise ,,, not green tho is it ! :-/ ??

Thanks for looking :-) I really do appreciate all your comments so please leave me one :-) Also I have a blog candy sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp ,, it is at the top of my blog if you would like to have a peek :-)

oops ,, I have just noticed a bit of white tape backing behind her leg !! It has been removed now and is not part of the design lol :-)
