Anyone For Anya? Spring Colour Challenge

Don't you just love this photo? I do! This photo is the inspiration for this week's SPRING Colour Challenge at the Anyone for Anya? blog. The design team gals have created some wonderful samples to help get your mojo flowing so pop over and visit them. Links are on the sidebar.

This week's prize is a $15 voucher to spend at Simon Says Stamp so get stamping! Please remember to use an image from The Greeting Farm or CC Designs.

Here is my card... I used the Anya with umbrella from the Rain Snow Shine set (this was the first time this set has seen ink!) and did some paper-piecing as well as colouring with my Copic markers (Love them!). I used the Club Anya Saturday Sketch (see below). You might notice that there is NO glitter on this card! Surprising I know! I have left it without a sentiment so I can add one when I need to use it. I am loving these colours... what a great combination!
Card Recipe:
Cardstock: Bazzill, white cardstock
Paper: DCWV Citrus Stack, Basic Grey June bug, Bella School Days blackboard paper
Stamps: TGF Rain Snow Shine
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellishments/Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities, Kaisercraft Pearls, American Crafts ribbon, prima flowers, Mulberry flowers, Green tara flowers, Martha Stewart scallop dot punch

Thanks for looking...have a great day!
