Anya in the Pink (and Lilac)

I've had a very productive day in my craft room today, had a bit of a tidy, made a couple of cards, discovered stash that I forgot I had .... and made a star card for a 21st birthday. Here's one of the cards that I made and I am entering it into the Anyone for Anya challenge this week, which is
'Mum's The Word'

I just love this cute Miss Anya image, which my lovely friend Susie sent to me recently, thank you so much, you know I'm going to have to buy these now!! I coloured with some girlie pinks and lilacs today, which is not my usual colour selection but I enjoyed working with them. I raided my paper cupboard and found this lovely lilac pearlescent paper from Craftwork Cards, the flowers paper is DCWV and the pink cardstock from the Paper Mill cut with my lovely Martha Stewart double loop punch set. I added a couple of prima flowers, I really wish I had bought a couple of packs of these in other colours - more for my shopping list ;-), a pearl brad from Papermania and finally a sentiment banner from Lakeland and I was done....

If only it was that quick, I had different pads of pack and cardstock all over the place while I was making this card!

I am also going to enter this card into the Cupcake challenge which this week is

Flower Power.

Am off to make my DT card for Creative Card Crew now and fit in a spot of sewing, mmmm or shall I bead?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
