Miss Anya -

Yea!!! I finally got to work with my new Greeting Farm "Miss Anya" collection! It has been so hard the past week or so seeing it sitting on my desk wanting to be inked up... Isn't she just too pretty for words? I colored with my Copics, then inked the edges with a light green ink. I tried to use my new pierce runner along the edges... hmmm don't think that worked so well here.
For my card I used a dusty pink card stock for the base, matted it with a scrap light sage green that I ran that paper piercer on. Both of these colors were pulled from the Papertrey ink pattern papers. Love how all of their stuff coordinates. I tore the pattern paper, and inked the edges. Ran a piece of satin ribbon across the middle. Matted Anya and used scraps to punch circles for the sentiment from Hero Arts. I doodled the edges with white gel pen and then added two vintage buttons.
It was a simple card - but I love her!
Just some FYI reminders... The Greeting Farm has new releases today!
Short today... MIL shopping day and we have a really long list today! Hope you have a great Wednesday!
