Anyone for Anya? meets Sketch and Stash

Hey, guys! How are you doing? Welcome to my new followers! Take a pew, I'll put the kettle on!

I'm feeling a bit surreal at the mo, having just seen a lovely documentary on Salisbury Choristers' School on tv, and now there's a programme on Queen!! From Byrd to Freddie Mercury - but it's all good music!

Enough of this waffle! This card is for the Anyone for Anya? Challenge whose theme is to use TEAL on your creation.

I love that colour! I love the pretty ducks it's named after, too, there are always several on our local RSPB nature reserve. So I coloured Anya's dress teal (with Speccies) and found some shiny teal Paperchase stickers in my stash, too. I distressed the image mat and sentiment (which is Penny Black) with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

The oval and scallopped oval are cut with Nesties. The pink card is pearlised, and is by Papermania. I added dots of Liquid Pearls to each scallop.

The bp is Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose Collection, and the strips are by Kate Knight from a paper stack freebie from last summer.

The sketch is the Sketch and Stash Challenge. Everything is old stash except the pink pearlised card.

So there you have it! Now I'm gonna singalonga 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. (Oh my, Freddie's onstage in a skintight multi-coloured Harlequin onesie! Only he could get away with it!)

Have a great weekend, everyone!

love Mags B x

PS That Doctor Brian May (the only physicist in history to play rock guitar on the roof of Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Golden Jubilee) is a bit of allright, too!

Heh Mags, I love teal too and your card is beautiful. Hubby is a fellow Queen and Freddie lover, in fact when he was young he looked a little like him apart from skintight suit lol.

Hi Mags
Lovely card. Such a gorgeous image and lovely colours used.
We too are Queen and Freddie fans. In fact, each year we go with some friends to the annual Queen convention which is organised by the Queen fan club. A whole weekend in tribute to the band and great music.

I'm sorry I missed that programme on Queen, Greg and I have been known to have a bit of a singalong to their greatest hits in the car!
