Festive Anya - Simon Says Stamp Challenge card

Happy Wednesday!
Simon Says Stamp Challenge has this fabulous sketch this week so I couldn't resist joining in! It's the first time I've done one of their challenges and I hope it won't be the last. It's been a kind of hit and miss day with the weather and the boys have had play dates so I had a chance to nip into my craft room and play!
I coloured Miss Anya with my copics and kept to a teal colour theme. Not a normal colour I would choose for a christmas card but I have to say I really love the result. The papers are from a stack I bought last season in Wal-Mart and the panel behind Anya is cuttlebug embossed with the swiss dots. The sentiment is The Stamp Barn and the gorgeous ribbon is from my local craft store. I added some organza ribbon which doesn't strictly follow the sketch but I'm sure that's ok! I sewed around all the panels for added detail.
And there you have it, another christmas card added to my growing stash (I might actually not be overwhelmed come christmas time!!).
Thanks for visiting today and leaving your comments - I really do appreciate every single one of them!
