** Classy Anya **

Hi, everyone!

I'm back with another card I just completed. This card wasn't intended for anyone in particular. I just wanted to participate in a some more challenges, and this card was the product of all that inspiration from the challenges.

The digi stamp on this card is from The Greeting Farm. I have fallen in love with this little girl. Her name is "Anya", and she has many different looks and styles to love. Her style in this particular image is called "Classy Anya". I guess she is considered "classy" because of her dainty tea-time look :)

The punch I used along the top and bottom is the "Doily Lace" large 1" punch by Martha Stewart Crafts. I had been eyeing this lovely punch for so long... I finally had to give in. I love it! The 3 flowers were individual layers of a flower cut out by my Cricut machine from the Bloom cartridge, and I pieced them together to achieve some handmade embellishments. I inked the edges of the white layers, and used a "pinch & bend" technique to give the base layer some dimension.

Here are the challenges I entered "Classy Anya" into:
