Sweet Anya

I wanted to make a card specifically with two challenges in mind this week:

Anyone for Anya - Pretty Bows
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Bingo (I chose brads, flowers & ribbon)

This card turned out much differently then I had originally planned but I love the blue/brown combo:
The background striped paper is from Stampin up & the blue cardstock is coredinations cardstock that I ran through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder (sorry can't remember the name).  I received the flowers quite awhile back from Danielle in a secret sister swap & the ribbon & brads I used for the centres of the flowers I picked up from Michaels ages ago.  It's so nice to use up things you have on hand!!   Hope everyone is having a great week, I've been feeling horrible the past two weeks and am having some tests done to make sure everything is OK but am really looking forward to feeling better.  My son is off to another cub camping trip this weekend in unheated cabins....definitely not for me but he is super excited.  Be sure to check back on Sunday to see who is the winner for my blog candy and don't forget there is still time to take part in Paper Sundaes Birthday Celebration & Blog Hop.  Click here for more details!!
