Winter Anya in blue



I do like these more grown-up Anyas, they are a bit more elegant than the chibi 'Wild Sprouts'!

This card is for a friend who lives in Bristol, where it has been very cold! I used Promarkers, as usual, and the fur trim and her muff have been Stickled and sprinkled with Polar White Flowersoft. Papers are from stash (I am trying so hard to use up my stash, but I've scarcely made a dent in it yet!!) - the brown is K and Co, and the blue spotted is a download from The Creative Cottage, but I can't remember the source of the flowered background.

Ribbon is Hobbycraft, flowers are stash, sentiment is written by lil' ole me. My normal handwriting is pants, so anything legible is a plus! And for once the picture is reasonably accurate, because we have sunshine in Herts! It's such a nice change from the wind and rain.

I'm entering this card into Creative Inspirations Challenge which is a colour combo of blue, brown and white; and Anyone for Anya? whose theme is 'Pretty Bows'; and Sunday Sketch and Stamp whose sketch I used.

Three challenges! I have to make a list of challenges, otherwise I forget which ones I want to enter!

I hope you're all having a sunny day, wherever you are!
Thanks for looking.

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Cinnamon, Cocoa, Henna; Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink; Cornflower, China Blue, Powder Blue.
