AFA - Something Completely Different


The challenge this week at Anyone for Anya? is to do something out of the ordinary, something you don't usually do or use. For example, you could use a new image or paper, or use a card fold or a technique you don't normally use, or a technique.

I decide to make a shaped card (cut with Nestabilities), cut out my Anya and layer my flowers differently. Also I've blended my pencils with Zest It rather than Sansador (no smell hurrah!). I'm very pleased with the end result and look forward to seeing what you come all up with. Just a reminder that you need use a Greeting Farm image to link back to the AFA blog to be eligible for the prize.

Adorable card Julie. I use nesties a lot to cut card shapes - they make really cute cards. :) I also use Zest It as it doesn't 'smell' unpleasant.
Love what you have done with this card.

I was wondering if you could help - i have noticed on some of your cards where you use flowers - you use a branch punch - where would I be able to buy this from? I think i have fallen in love with this.
