Friday Sketchers & Charisma Cardz Challenges

Happy Wednesday crafters!

I'm so disappointed today - my husband has spoken to his boss and arranged the day off work so that I could go to the Hobbycrafts show in Birmingham on 5th November. But, when I phoned to book my place on the coach trip, they told me they had a misprint in their leaflet - they are going on the Sunday not Thursday. And my husband is working all weekend because they are stocktaking, so I can't go on the trip :(

Anyway, I'll show you my card - maybe some lovely comments would cheer me up!!

I have followed the sketch on this week's Friday Sketchers challenge - loved using this one. And I have stamped Miss Anya 3 times, coloured her with my watercolour pencils, and decoupaged her up, so that fits this weeks challenge over on Charisma Cardz. The papers are My Minds Eye Magnolia, courtesy of Fran (I love these papers). The sentiment is from Papermania. Ribbon and gems from my stash.




The image below is meant to show the decoupaged Anya (doesn't show it very clearly though!).


I hope you like my card, and I look forward to you popping back again sometime to see what I've been up to!

Love, Andrea xx

Your card is lovely--I love the colors and papers, and the way you colored and decoupaged Anya! Sorry you can't go to that craft show--I suggest "retail therapy"--go shopping online instead!!
Hugs,
