Summery Anya with Flowers

 Here' a card I've made for my cousin's wife. I thought I'd go for a nice summery girly card!


Supplies:
Image: "Anya with flowers" from The Greeting Farm, coloured with Promarkers.
Papers: Green striped & flowery papers from Papermania.
Tools: Nestabilities blossoms for image, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die for flowers, Woodware leaf punch.
Embellishments: Gems for flower centres. Edge of card/ leaves were chalked. Sentiment is a topper from Dovecraft.

Challenges:
Sketch n Stash #62 - sketch. The Papermania papers have been lurking in the drawer for ages and I really wanted to try and use up some older stuff (as we have new things to put in the drawer!)
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes 
Paperplay Challenges #21 - Blossoms & Blooms 
Crafty Catz #84 - Pink & Green 
Totally Papercrafts #68 - Pink & Girly
