Plain and Simple


I never really intended to make a card when I stamped this Anya up (can you tell she's my favourite?) I just wanted to try out a different skin tone but she turned out so well it seemed a shame not to put her on a card. I've used a relatively plain but still pleasing (to me at any rate) layout. Hope you've all enjoyed your bank holiday weekend. The weather in London has been lovely, a bit too nice to spend indoors so only this little bit of crafting done.

Such a pretty card Julie. I love this anya as well! Love the simple colour scheme and LO. I am a big fan of CAS cards. I sometimes have a bit of a meltdown if I enter a challenge that involves lot and lots of layers! :-)
Hugs, Vicky -x-
