Sketch Saturday #76: Romanian Miss Anya

The wonderful Debbie is hosting this week's challenge (#76) over at Sketch Saturday, and our prize is two Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps, donated by Create4Fun.

This is a mega-quick post as I'm really busy at the moment (I'm scheduling this, so fingers crossed Mr Blooger plays nice!), plus I've got a jam-packed weekend planned!

I decided to use a Miss Anya Dressy for this card, and now I kind of wish I'd use the red, white and blue colour theme I was going to use originally, as I think she looks very French!

I coloured her using my limited supply of 36 Copics (but don't look too hard, otherwise you'll see a few 'going out of the lines' mistakes, LOL!).

Here are a couple more shots to show the dimension:

Luckily I was able to find a tiny bit of this red satin ribbon in my stash - phew!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Cute Card Thursday ... Challenge 85 Primary Colours : Red, yellow and blue!

2. Anyone for Anya? ... Patriotic Anya : To use the colours of your national flag.  Well, both mine (British) and hubby's (NZ) flags are red/white/blue, so I thought I'd go for a different flag and honour my Romanian friends today!

Okay, must fly guys!  Go check out the other DT's work - it's FAB!

Hugs, Sem x
