Sweet 16........Anyone for Anya 1st Challenge

The first challenge for the new Anyone for Anya blog is Sugar 'n' Spice. I've made this card for my son's girlfriend, (there's a piccie of the both of them a few posts down)Becca's Sweet 16th Birthday which is in two weeks time, so this new challenge gave me the inspiration and motivation to make a start on her card.

Lots going on with this one as I decided to make a tri-fold card and box, it took me most of the day, but it's done now, thank goodness...lol!!!

The papers are MME "Magnolia"...hey check out the stitching on all pages and the box as well...I ran out of DST....so I had no choice other than to sew...me and my impatience couldn't wait until morning to finish the card..kinda pleased with the stitching though considering I am stil scared on my sewing machine.....lol!!!
Miss Anya's have been coloured with Distress Inks, the flowers are a mix of Primas and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, the swirls are a Quickutz die all of which have been Glimmer Misted. MS Butterfly punch from Tracy at Dies to Die For, Leone Em ash branch punch from The Glitter Pot, lots of gems from my stash.

Above is a piccie of the card and box, same embellies as before
And here is what the inside looks like, apologies for the pants photo....more Miss Anya's, more Prima's and even more stitching... organza ribbon and charms from my crafty stash. sentiments were printed on the computer, I think that's about it.

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis and for all the lovely, kind comments you've take the time to leave, as always I really do appreciate them......mwah......

luv 'n' hugs
