Challenging challenges

Good Sunday morning to you, hope everyone had a pleasant weekend. :)
I found the time to make this card for the Club Anya "I wanna be like Pam" challenge. Her work is amazing and I will be the first to admit that this card pushed me out of my card making comfort zone. As you have probably seen I don't do a whole lot of multiple layers... and though it took some effort on my part I'm really glad I did because I think they are exactly what this card needed. :)
Just FYI, there is a new sketch challenge over at Anyone for Anya this week... looks to be a fun one and the DT examples are fantastic!
And on Friday I finally got my act together and sent in my application for the Club Anya design team. There is no going back now, no choosing different cards, no more second guessing... and let me tell you the nerves have definitely begun and they just keep getting worse as the big day approaches. I know I can't be the only one out there feeling this way, so good luck to everyone trying out... the wait is almost over. :)

cardstock- Bazzill and GP

Best of luck, and by the way, that is a lovely card! Great and unusual use of that particular image. I love wintery looking cards. (Perhaps because it's almost 100 every day here in Houston and I have to say, I'm a little tired of it!)
