A new card at last - Princess Anya

At last, I have finally made a card!!!

It has been about 2 weeks since I did any crafting due to my holiday and the endless pile of washing and ironing that followed!  Usually I take some crafting on holiday with me so that I can "get my fix" but this time I didn't, the ship's cabins are a bit small and I wasn't planning on spending much time in the cabin.  Lot's to catch up on now though!

I bought 2 new Anya stamps which arrived just before I went away and I've been itching to have a play with them.  This Princess Anya card is my first try.  I like the simpleness of the images - really easy to colour with my pro markers! 
Here's what I've used:
Image - Princess Anya, from The Greeting Farm, coloured with Pro Markers
Paper - from the DCWV Stack 6 pad plus DCWV glitter mat stack
Sentiment - from Pollycraft
Bling, buttons and bits from my stash

I used the left over papers to decorate the inside of my card too.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Totally Paper crafts - I have used their sketch
Forever Friends - cute, not forever friends
Craftalicious - monotone, I've used shades of blue teal
The Pixie Cottage - Inside out, I decorated the inside of my card to match

Thanks so much for stopping by, pop back soon!
