Greetings Farm Any one for Anya Friday Sketchers

Another hattrick for me with a fabulous but quite hard sketch no 84 provided by Friday Sketchers  (the difficulty was cutting the layered papers so that the flowers were upright on both sides) and a lovely Miss Anya fits the bill for Any one for Anya which has an "anything goes" theme.  Splendid Stamping at the Greetings Farm wanted glitter and sparkle and whereas it is not so noticeable on the photo of my card, I used spica pens to draw stripes on all the gold and red-brick stripes of the background paper and the horizontal paper ribbon so it shimmers like mad when tilted.  Some extra sparkle has been added to Anya's dress, hair ornament and socks.

The papers are by Basic Grey from a pack I have hardly used but they worked really well with these challenges and Miss Anya and the frame for the sentiment (cut with a Sizzix die) has been coloured with my Copics and Promarkers.  The sentiment itself is word processed. Thank you for stopping by!
