Two challenges in one!!!

I just love these Greeting Farm images of the "teenage" style Anya's so I couldn't wait to colour one in that Vicki sent me!!
This card is for the Spoonfull of Sugar challenge which is Blue and Green!!!! I looked for a sketch challenge too and found the Isimaki challenge which was a sketch, never entered this one before but I loved the sketch so I thought I would use that one............ trouble was I didnt read further down where it said you had to use PURPLE!!!!! ARgghhhh I am doing a Diane!!! (you know who you are!!!)
Anyway colour combo is Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green and Green Galore. I have coloured the image with my Stampin Up markers which of course perfectly match the papers so no rummaging around for a colour match!!!

Papers are from the Rainbow Sherbert set and I have used the Circle of Friendship stamp set for the sentiment.

I love these retro flowers, they give the card a bit more dimension.

Had to share this with you before I go!! Ross, my 9 year old had his first rugby match for the school yesterday, it rained solidly!!!!!! This is what he looked like when he got home!!

And look at his leg, some nasty boy has studded his leg!!!!

GOod old MUm had a bath all run and waiting for him!!!



  1. Gorgeous card - these papers are just so beautiful - I am waiting for some to arrive, but not this set.

    Thanks for joining us this week at ASFOS.

    Like the way you have punched the flowers out of the same paper.. so effective.
