My first Anya card...this year

Hello girlies! Hope you're having a good day.
It is super cold here and a lot of snow came down over night. I was so hoping that we'll get like super a lot of snow and our office will close, but that didn't happen... bummer. So I only got to stamp and craft after I got home from work.
Have you guys ever visited a Aly's Sunday Challenge blog? This sweet 11 year old stamper comes up with some cool sketches. And here is one of them:
I always have difficulty following sketches, so last year I decided to play with as many sketches as I can. And here is what I came up with:
Instead of just a circle, I used this dahlia flower by Spellbinders. And I embossed "Anniversary" with Ranger iridescent embossing powder. I made a bow with my ribbon, but I'm not too thrilled with this bow.... Oh yes, meant to layer my green card stock on top of that burgundy one only on two corners, so it was not a glitch :)
Here is the closeup on my Anya. I hope the Greeting Farm will not be upset with me for adding extra full lashes to my Anya :)
And here is the inside of my card. I received this poem by email from one of my friends and changed the last line to read "wife" instead of a "friend", as I'm going to use this card for my hubby
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you're staying safe and warm!


  1. Your Anya is so cute...Great color combo burgundy/green. Nestie flowers are very cute, might invest in those.

  2. Adorable, love this card. Great layout too. Looks like I'll have to be picking up another nestie.

  3. Very sweet, the dahlia Nesite works so well and I love Anya's eyelash extensions LOL!

  4. pretty card! and the eyelashes are fabulous!

  5. Great job with the sketch! SO cute!
