Springtime with Anya

Happy beautiful Wednesday everyone!
Well it is indeed springtime here in VA, Monday's high hit a whopping *89! Yeah!
The weather has cooled down a little, but the birds are singing every morning.
I love it, and Anya does too. heehee!

So for fun I played around with a few challenges, using Sitting Lovely from TGF,
one of the many adorable new releases this spring.
Anya comes with a cute park bench, but I thought I'd let her sit near  a tree. ;)
Papers are from October Afternoon, image is colored in with copics.
Here are my challenges for the week:

Craft Your Passion Challenge: Die Cuts and Punches (nesties and scallops)
The Squirrel and the Fox: Things with wings
Our Daily Bread Designs: S.P.R.I.N.G acrostic {Song sheet, Patterned Paper, Red, Ink, Nestie, Girl image)
Sweet Stampin': Girly but no pink
Fetch A Sketch: Current sketch (flipped)

Thank you so much for coming by everyone, have a wonderful day!

GASP....this is a beautiful card. I can't decipher if it's the colors, the papers, the layout, the image, or what...but it's stunning all around. Nice work!

Thank you SO much for playing along with us at The Squirrel & The Fox for our challenge.
Good luck to you and we hope you come back next week to play along again.
