Flapper Anya........shake ya booty!!!

Good evening fellow lovely crafters, hope you have all had a fabby explosive weekend lol...... sorry for the pun but I just couldn't resist he he hee!
Right less jibber-jabber & onto tonights card. I have decided to try & get through all of my neglected stamps, whilst searching through I have found all of my Anya stamps.....I have neglected them sooo much infact except for 1 I have not made a card with any of them!!! How darn shocking is that??
Well tonight peeps for your eyes la la laaaaaa (sorry getting carried away wit the singin) here is 'Flapper Anya'..........

I absolutely love the sepia look & I thought this Anya was the perfect stamp to create this look with & also I am sooooo in love with these papers......ssssshhhh dont tell hubby!!!
For this card I followed the sketch over at Anyone For Anya, this is the 1st time I'm entering their challenge. My 1st Anya card I ever did was actually the 1st card I made & the 1st time I had used Promarkers & stamps back in March.....I then started blogging a few weeks after....its been nearly 8 months already...gosh!!!

For the charm I cut a small oval piece of paper from the patterned paper used for matting & then glued it inside the charm & then covered it in glossy accents & put it aside to dry. I think these look fab & there are quite a few things you can do with them, once dry I just attached to a foam pad to raise it up a little on the card. For Anya's hairband I attached a cream feather & a smaller black feather.

Paper edge has been distressed with my scissors cus sometimes I can get a better effect than with the distresser they have then been glittered up with Diamond Dust stickles. All layers that Anya stands on have been inked with 'Vintage Photo' distress ink. A Flapper girl needs her sparkle so Copper stickles have been added to her dress & some on the backing.......

Flower were also edged with Vintage Photo & the middle rose has touches of Copper stickles also. The tag is a set of digi stamps I won I just printed it off, inked the edges in the same ink & attached a sparkly gem & adhered it to the card with a foam says 'To The Birthday Girl'.
I am quite pleased with the card.....I think lol. I certainly love the stamp & papers lol.

List Of Materials Used & Links.....
