Anyone for Anya? meets Whimsy Challenges

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. It's a bitterly cold day here, I doubt I'll be venturing out much at all. I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things and getting some cards made.

Todays card is for 2 challenges....1) Anyone for Anya? with their fabby sketch and 2) Whimsy Challenges who ask for chipboard to be used on your project.

This little image is from The Greeting Farm's Hope & Grace series.. how sad looking is she?! Washday blues spent daydreaming about shoes and handbags.. well that's what I was trying to portray anyway, lol.

I coloured the image with copic markers, cut it out and then mounted it onto chipboard that I had painted with crackle paint. The papers are Basic Grey Wisteria and they have been edged with Vintage Photo distress ink. The 'Dream' brad, charms, heart pearls and scrappers floss are from my stash. The flowers & pin are from Tabby Crafts.

I also matched the inside, but no stamping :)

A close-up of the sparkly flowers and pearl topped pin. I love my stickles!! 

Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting!!
