{ANYONE FOR ANYA?} Sunday Challenge

This week, we have a SKETCH challenge for you over at
{ANYONE FOR ANYA?} and it's a good one!
We would love to see your take on it.  Just be sure to use a stamp/image from THE GREETING FARM or CCDESIGNS to play along.
For my card today, I used one of the three Anya stamps that come in the newest "MISS ANYA SCARVES" set by The Greeting Farm:
I absolutely LOVE this Anya!
She might be my favorite...
Shhhh... don't tell the others! :)
I stamped her onto watercolor paper and water colored her with Distress Inks.  I paper pieced her scarf with matching paper used on the base.  The papers are from Penny Black's "Madison" paper pack.  The sentiment die and stamp are from My Favorite Things.  I added some flat-back pearls and some dimensional adhesive and the card was finished!
I added some Stardust Stickles all around her as snow. I shimmered up her hand muff with some sparkles, too.  I inked around the edges with Distress Ink to tie everything together.  I love the look of Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on Kraft paper.
This is the sketch for you to work with this week:
I switched it up a tiny bit to fit my square card a little better, but I think you can still see the sketch in it.  So... have fun with it!  Make it your own and come link up with us. :)
