Anyone for Anya's #1 "Sugar & Spice"

This week is the first challenge over on Anyone for Anya's, and it will come as no surprise that I have joined in....I think I own most of the Anya stamps...with a few exception. I remember back when I first saw them in September 2008...all new and shiny. I placed my first order and eagerly awaited their arrival from the US...and almost a year later and everyone else has fallen in love and they are everywhere...and I still love them.

So back to the challenge, Dawny and the team have set a theme of "Sugar & Spice". So for my card I used one of the new Dressy Miss Anya's and she has been coloured with Copics. The cute papers are also all by The Greeting Farm, and I used my Martha Stewart Valentine Lace border punch to create the heart edge. I finally added a sentiment by Craftwork Cards layered using my SU oval and scalloped oval punches, and I used my Nestabilities to layer Miss Anya...all finished off with a few blossoms from my stash held with spacers and brads.

I have also borrowed the lovely sketch #65 provided over on Sketch Saturday this week....I love a good sketch.

Thanks to both the DT of Anyone for Anya's and Sketch Saturday for the inspiration.
