Anyone for Anya meets Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Hi, guys! Just quickly posting before a nice warm bath and an early night!

Anyone for Anya is asking for a Father's Day card. I love this cute Greeting Farm lad in his little waistcoat! I coloured him, then cut him out and used foam pads to stick him on a Nesties die-cut. I embossed the die-cut, then distressed it with Broken China DI, and ran some stickles around the blue mat.

The sketch is from this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I really like it. The papers are DCWV Garden Party stack, the brown horizontal strip is embossed with glittered dots, very nice!

The narrow brown ribbon is from stash. I used an MS punch on the blue strip, then stickled along the top edge. The corners are Wild Orchid and the shiny spots are Paperchase.

I'll be posting another Dream Valley Challenge card tomorrow - this last fortnight has sped by!

See you then!

Thanks for looking, and sleep well!

luv, Mags x

PS Drat! Chucked out the PM list! Oops!
