Anyone for Anya - Something Completely Different.....

Thanks for popping by today - it's Anyone for Anya? challenge time! This week, we are sponsored by the splendiferous Tracy from Dies to Die For and we are challenging you to create something completely different. By that we mean that we want you to make something you wouldn't normal make or using a technique or a style that you wouldn't normally use. You get the idea, right? For my card, I decided to make an unorthadox RSVP card for my best friends wedding. Her colours are green so I thought this colour scheme might be appropriate......

For this challenge, I decided to drag out one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders and used it instead of my beloved design papers. I also tried to produced a CAS card. I say tried as I've not done it very well! I have lost count of the amount of times I ripped that green panel off and repositioned it because it was wonky. The thing about CAS cards is that they have to be perfect.... far too much pressure for me! I think I'm safer when there are more layers to distract the eye from general wonkiness!

Goodie List........
Digi Stamp: The Greeting Farm.
Copic Markers: E00, E11, E33, E43, E47, E49, E50, R20, R22, R32, G21, G85, G99, Y21, YG23, W1, W3, W5, W7.
Tools & Embellishments: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, ribbon and button from stash.

BTW, I can safely say the Thai last night was utterly delish. The best thing I had was some kind of chicken peanut curry thing {with a name I've forgotten already} which was totally to die for..... making my mouth water just thinking about it!

Right, I'm going to grab a coffee and then do a bit of blog hopping! Happy Sunday lovely ladies!
