Miss Anya Birthday Card

Hiya! It's all systems go here - all my stuff has arrived for the 47 cards I need to make so I ought to get cracking. Just had time to get this one done before it all got here. And I thought I'd better make it a good one as this is for the lovely lady who's ordered the other 47!
I love this image - Miss Anya Dressy - she's gorgeous! I coloured her using my promarkers (how did I ever survive without them?) and I used a sketch from Paperplay Challenges that also requires me to use new stash (yummy purple glitter and the gorgeous purple flower I won from Debs). My Xcut shape-cutter wouldn't cut exactly the right size circles so I went back to school and used a good old compass and scissors!
The background paper is a digi download from Docrafts from aaaages ago (Cupcake Craft Challenges - Let's Get Digital) and then a strip of Henbury Lane. For the yellow flowers I've layered up three shades of yellow flowers onto one stalk and scrunched them up a bit. The sentiment is a clear stamp from Clare Curd's range.
This also fits the challenges at Meljen's (Happy Birthday) and Crafty Cardmakers spotlight challenge (Glitter and Sparkle).
Hope you like it! If you don't hear from me for a while, it'll be because I'm buried under a mountain of tags and organza ribbon :-)
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx

Good luck with all those cards and hope it doesn't get too repetative, you could always have a break doing a challenge or see if there are any challenges your order cards will fit.
