First card of 2010!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I have to say that 2010 has got off to great start for me...I've just discovered that I won the last Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge...and a fab prize package from Toodles & Binks...woo-hoo!

Well, on to my first card of 2010...well, actually it's my last card of 2009, but I didn't get around to photographing it yesterday. I used the sketch from Anyone for Anya to make a 'Thank you card' for the Creative Inspirations Challenge. I've used 'Miss Anya'...and coloured her to match some of my favourite My Mind's Eye '29th Street Market' papers. I embossed a couple of the papers using the Cuttlebug 'Victoria' and 'Textile' folders, which I then sanded to reveal the patterns. I distressed the edges of all the papers using my distressing tool, and added a few adhesive pearls, and a Hero Arts sentiment (from the 'Anytime Messages' set).
