Lovely

This is a Birthday card I made for my super talented dear friend Lorie from the Sisterhood on SCS. If you haven't checked out her blog you need to do so. She is very inspirational not only as a crafter but also how she leads her life. One visit to her blog and you'll understand. I used a Basic Grey paper pack and the inspiration for the colors on the Miss Anya Dressy came from that pretty background paper. I colored this Lovely Miss Anya up with copics and used my nesties for the circle and rectangle. The sentiment is from the new Hello Go Round set from TGF. I sewed around the rectangle and the background. For this card I used Sketch #18 from Unscripted Sketches.

Don't forget to check out the Club Anya blog for a week long party of challenges.

Lorie said...

Awwwww! Mary, you are the sweetest!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card. She is so cute, and you've colored her to perfection! You really have a handle on the style I love, and you put papers together so very well. By the time I get finished framing all the cards from my sistahs, I'm going to need all the wall space in a whole room. That's okay, though, because I can enjoy them every minute of every day! I can't wait till she lands in my mailbox so I can get my paws on her!! Thank you very much, my sweet ant talented friend!!

Love Ya!
Lorie
