Happy Anyaversary!!

It is so exciting to be a part of this spectacular blog hop!!

I chose to use Annika from the Wild Sprouts collection. I am so proud that it was my suggestion that was picked to name that collection and I am so very excited about the two new additions to it. Have you seen Megan and Bree? OH MY GOODNESS - they are adorable.

I used Prismacolor markers to color her and the decorative paper is American Crafts. I chose a clean and simple layout to the card. I drew in a bow to make it appear that she is carrying birthday gifts, instead of books.

And this is my daughter's card. She chose her very favorite Miss Anya stamp.


Thanks for stopping by on your way through this birthday bash! We appreciate your visit.

I love how your card is so crisp looking, without being harsh - the teensy bit of black mixed with all that white really makes the colours you did use pop! Your daughter's card is super cute, too - I love the colours she chose, and her colouring of Miss Anya is awesome!
