Another "Couture" Anya and an Award!

Jacquie at Javablustamper gave me my very first blog award yesterday!! Thank you Jacquie!! I am so excited because now I get to pay forward the warm fuzzies to 5 bloggers who inspire me! (There are WAY more than 5 whose work I LOVE but I did keep it to 5!) If you haven't been to their blogs, you should really take a look. Color really draws my attention, so you will notice that these five ladies are extraordinarily talented with color!

My card today is the second one I've done for the "Club Couture" contest at Club Anya! I tried to make a more grown up outfit this time, though it is still pretty casual. I think it is Mommy Chic! I would love to dress like this (but I wouldn't look as good as Anya does - I just don't have the legs!!) The sketch is from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge # 32. (I turned it on it's side!)

The details:
Stamps: Miss Anya (w/shopping bags) for the body, Miss Anya Snow for the head - The Greeting Farm
Paper - Basic Grey, Choc Chip - SU, PTI white
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E50,Y21,Y26,Y28
Clothes: R81,R83,R85,B95,B97,B99,E55,E57,E74,E77,E79

Tomorrow I will have another sneak peek of an upcoming Greeting Farm release!!
Thank You for visiting!
