...Club Anya Blog Hop

Happy Holidays...Anya-style! This is my submission for the Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop! I always have such a great time hopping from blog to blog, and seeing what everyone comes up with for their projects! I decided to use the Anya image from Xmas Sweeties combined with several pieces of patterned paper from the BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper pack. She was stamped in black, then watercolored using my ink pads and a water-filled brush pen. I cut her out, and popped her off of the focal panel with Dimensionals. I also added a little bit of *sparkle* to her outfit with some Stardust Stickles, then added some silver pearls to the sentiment panel. A piece of Riding Hood Striped Ribbon completed the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to check out the complete Blog Hop List at the Club Anya Blog! You also will not want to miss the release of new images after the hop at MIDNIGHT CST...you can check them out at The Greeting Farm Store. Until tomorrow...
