Happy Birthday...


Today I've made a card using the new beauty, Hi Anya from TGF. I didn't know what kind of card this was going to be when I first started coloring her up. Even after I found this great scrap of paper I still wasn't sure. There are so many happy colors and patterns in this quilt looking paper that I stamped Anya on four different squares to pick just the right print to paper piece her dress from. Ultimately I went with the blue because it looked the best with her brassy red hair. In the end Anya let me know that this should be a birthday card and who was I to argue?  ;)

Later gators!

Your Card Is so Cute, Love your coloring. I tried coloring for the first time In January and used a Greeting Farm Stamp. But I only had a few markers to color with and I tried paper piecing for the first time. I didn't do to bad for my first time. If you ever get a chance I would love for you to come over to my blog and tell me your thoughts on It. I know I need a lot more practice on the hair. Glad I stopped by. Thanks for Sharing your Cute Card.
