Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do!

Good afternoon, all! It's a beautiful, warm Spring day here in S-E Hertfordshire, with sunshine and blue skies! Such a lovely change, it seems as though it's been grey and cold for months!

Here's a summery card featuring Anya from the 'Miss Anya Love' set by The Greeting Farm. I've wanted this set for ages, and treated myself after Christmas, it's a bit embarrassing that I've only just inked one of these cuties up!

I apologise for the wonky photo, I'm obviously no David Bailey!

I coloured Anya with Promarkers, and there are stickles on the flowers and Glossy Accents on the heart in her hair ornament. The elaborate mat is a Spellbinders 'Timeless Rectangles' die, another post-Christmas purchase. The papers are Nitwits 'The Bees Knees' collection, they are so pretty!

The sentiment banner is by LotV and I put a foam pad in the middle and glued down the ends to give the curve. The lace is from stash. The flowers and leaves are made with  Woodware punches and distressed with Vintage Photo, with gems from my stash in the middle.

I also decorated the inside, but my pics are so naff that I don't dare post them!!

Challenges I'm entering:

Sunday Sketch and Stamp provided the fab sketch:
A Passion for Promarkers have a theme 'One For the Ladies', this is definitely girly!

Last but certainly not least, Anyone For Anya? has a wonderful photo inspiration:

I may have gone a bit OTT with the daisies....

There is also a DT CALL at Anyone For Anya?

Phew, this is a long post! Thanks for sticking with it, and I hope you're all having a good day.

Thanks for looking!
