Excitement here today, it's Evan's 15th birthday and we're expecting my sis Gillian and her husband Steve to arrive a bit later, we are all going to gather at my daughter Lynsey's flat for some takeaway food and then going to a Fringe show which my niece Rachael is appearing in. Plans were almost brought to a halt when we discovered that Rachael had ended last night in hospital (high temperature caused a bit of a collapse at the theater venue and last night's performance was cancelled) but she is feeling much better now and the show will go on! She doesn't know yet that her Mum & Dad are coming tonight - she thinks they are still in Hampshire so we're hoping it will be a lovely surprise for her.

Anyway, between tidying and changing beds I have managed to fit in a quick challenge card, I followed the sketch at Cute Card Thursday. My image is a Miss Anya which I had already coloured and was waiting for an opportunity to use, I chose this image after I putting the basics of the card together because I thought her hair worked perfectly with the Stampin Up backing papers!
I used a couple of Nellie Snellen dies to cut out my flowers which I spritzed with Blonde Moments pearl pigments, I crumpled them up and then dried them with my heat tool. They are held together with brads which I coloured copper with embossing powder. The leaf die is from Little Claire.

This is good for the challenges at:
Aud Sentiments - Anything goes
Charisma - Die cuts
Fab n Funky - Flower Power
Sentimental Sunday - Ribbon or lace
Ooh La La - Spots & dots
