You're so cool

Welcome to the weekend my friends!

It's been pretty grey and rainy here so I don't even mind that I'm working through it. What about you... any big plans?

So, this card isn't for any challenges or anything... I just wanted to ink up another of the Hat's Off Miss Anyas. This time I went with this super chic little lady in her fancy fedora. I found these papers in one of my scrap bags and I thought they looked like a stylin' fabric print that suited Miss Anya's vibe so onto the card they went. I pulled all of my Copic colors from them as well and the new E81 (Ivory) that I used for her shirt, is such a perfect khaki color, It's kind of a brown with greenish undertones and I really, really hope that the people at Copic plan to add to this color family sooner rather than later... I'd be happy with just an E85! :)
When it came time to embellish the card the Tim Holtz film strip ribbons seemed like a natural addition because Anya totally looks like a movie star doing press reviews to me. Then I finished it all off with some sparkle and bling for good measure. ;)

Well, that's all I've got for today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your Saturday!

Hi Amy. This is just adorable! I am with you on the new colors. I finally got mine in the mail yesterday and I love these new Es. I can not tell you just how much I love this card. I love the colors, the embellies and the way that you have colored Anya. Hope you are having a great Saturday. I am tired, but had a great day at work and glad to be off for a full two days. :O) Hugs, Lisa
