Anyone for Anya? Patriotic Anya!

I just lurve this weeks theme at Anyone for Anya...... we are challenging you to make a patriotic card using the colours of your nation! Cool huh?!

We are also sponsored by Hobbystempels.nl who have been extremely generous and have offered up a Miss Anya Dressy set to one lucky winner! So what are you waiting for? Get cracking with the {no doubt} Red, White and Blue!



 So here is my offering. Pretty pleased with how it turned out actually. I suppose it helps that I am totally in love with this new Pink Petticoat 'Fairy Light' kit! It's is just so gorgeous, that I have decided that I am going to make all of my 'bulk' christmas cards from it this year! Now.... the eagle-eyed among you will notice that I have included some snowflakes on my card. IRL, these are extremely sparkly. But, from the photo......? Not so much! As I would like to enter this card in to this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge where the theme is 'Glitter and Sparkle', I thought that I had better prove that there really is some glitter and sparkle on my card! So, for those interested, please click on the close up below where you should see a tiny bit of sparkle!



Goodie List........
Stamps: Rain, Snow and Shine by The Greetings Farm.
Paper: Pink Petticoat 'Fairy Lights'.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.
Tools & Embellishments: Nesties, Stickles, Liquid Applique, Dovecraft snowflake punch & Fiskars Apron Lace border punch.

Hope the weather with you is better than the storms we currently have in Southampton!
