Sweetly Soft Miss Anya - Day 5


TGF's 12 Days sketch challenge last month revealed another great sketch on Day 5 by Mercy Kerin! How does she keep coming up with these??

The lighting when I took this picture was awful, so I do apologize. The sweet Miss Anya image was a gift from my dear stampin sister & friend Kadie. Those familiar with her know that she is uber-creative and a rockstar card maker! I can only hope I did this image justice! All of the colors were pulled from the floral paper - wonderfully soft but with hints of poppy red. And I thought the colors and playful pattern suited Miss Anya to a T.

So it's a super quick post for today, but I think I'll actually have all 12 Days of Sketches posted before the end of January! Yay! I almost can't want to post my card for Day 6, because I must admit that it's my favorite! Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day . . . hmm, you'll just have to come back to find out! Ah-ha-ha-ha!

Until then, happy creating!

Beautiful beautiful job on this card, Susan!! Pftt of course you did Miss Anya justice...your creativity and talent are off the charts! This is BEAUTIFUL! I love the soft palette of colors, the way you've popped the image off the page (brilliant cutting too around those delicate flowers!)and I really like the piercing around the background, as well as the tiny corner cutouts! Brilliant!! I can see why this is your fave! :)
