Anyone for Anya meets Wild Orchid!
It's another Christmas card! It's also another faded photo - those reds and greens are a bit darker irl.
I found a pack of gold card in my stash the other day which I thought would look good with the Dovecraft 'Noel' pack. So I got out my favourite Anya and coloured her in Christmas Speccies et voila!
I may have overdone the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, but once I started I couldn't stop! The gorgeous metal corner is also from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The frame is cut with a Go Kreate Frilly Square 6. I used a Marianne die for the swirl and an X-Cut die for the star. The sentiment is LotV and the starry red ribbon was a magazine freebie last year.
I'm entering two challenges: Anyone for Anya? has the lovely sketch (I hope I haven't covered it up too much!!)
The current Wild Orchid Challenge is 'Make it sparkle with stars!' - well, there are stars on the ribbon and also one die-cut in the corner!
It seems so odd to be making a Christmas card on such a gorgeous sunny day!
Thanks for looking, and I hope the sun is shining on you - literally and metaphorically!
luv, Mags x
