Fleur Anya for granddaughter

This card is for one of our grandchildren who has a birthday at the end of next week. I know that Faye won't see this - if by any chance her mum or sisters stray on to my blog, Shhhhhh, don't tell Faye!

More often than not I tend to follow a sketch for a challenge, but this made a change - broadband went down, so I couldn't access a sketch, so I just did my own thing.

Papers are Bo Bunny my darling dots and my darling motion (using the other side of both of them). The stamp is Fleur Anya by The Greeting Farm. I stamped and coloured with copics and then paper pieced the dress and the flowers in her hair using Bo Bunny paper - and then I decoupaged another layer of flowers, making some to decorate the corner of the card as well.

The number 5 was a white chippie and I coloured with matching cerise copic. I can't remember where the piece of ribbon came from, but it was just right for my pink and green theme.

This is for:

Anyone for Anya: pretty bows
Farm fresh Friday: goes pop
Totally Gorjuss 64: hot, hot, hot (the colours)
Paper pretties 137: paper piecing
Quirky crafts 2: in the spring garden - flowers and pink and green
Ribbon girl colour challenge 4: pink and green
Whoopsi Daisy: pretty in pink
Creative Belli 109: the letter P - pink
Do you stack up? 3: pink
Bildmalarna: pink
Top tip Tuesday 18: all sentimental
Sarah Hurley 26: birthday girl
Prairie fairy Fridays 44: happy birthday
Sisterhood of crafters: birthday
Die cut dreams Christmas club 51: winter birthday (hope this qualifies because the card doesn't look wintry, but the birthday is definitely in winter!)
365 cards day 328: Saturday's word of the day - happy
Creative inspirations 51: celebrate
Delightful: let's celebrate
Gingerloft 9: celebrations
Charisma cardz 3: magic numbers
Oldie but a goodie 10: bright and cheerful (the stamp is fairly old)
Pile it on 3: anything goes
Let's ink it up 8: anything goes
Pear tree designs 32: free for all
