Exciting News + AFA Recipe Challenge!

Monday, January 30, 2012

Hi everyone! Today I want to share some exciting news....I have been asked to be a part of the Anyone for Anya Design Team!! I am so thrilled to be a part of such a creative and diverse team, especially as I love my TGF stamps!

This week over at Anyone for Anya we have a recipe challenge:

3 papers + 2 embellishments + 1 image

Seems easy right? Maybe is you aren't paranoid like I am! lol! I was going to be naughty and do two 'types' of embellishments, but then  I thought NO - I must be disciplined! So, in the end, I went for a really nice and simple card using my new Miss Anya Garland Stamp. I used some DPs from My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey. My two embellishments were a cream ribbon which I folded into a flower shape, and a vintage-look button from Prima.

I coloured Miss Anya using my copic markers and edged all of my papers using Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink. I also used a gold pen to draw on a border (I thought sewing would be counted as another embellishment lol!).

Hope to see all of your beautiful creations over at Anyone for Anya this week - we have some great sponsors and it is a lot of fun :)

Thanks for stopping by!

I am also entering this over at the Make It Monday Linky Party :)
