Merry Christmas...

Good morning! 

The last time I colored up this gorgeous Holiday Anya was six years ago when she was first released so getting her on another card seemed long overdue. The first go round I had stuck with very traditional red and green Christmas colors so why not try something completely different this time? These pretty Christmas papers with their antique gold hues where very inspirational thus the "silver and gold" treatment that she got. I did my best to make the holly in her hair look like a gold jewelry piece and her dress like sparkly gold lame and silver fox fur. I think she looks quite elegant! Hmmm... there have been four more Holiday Anyas since this winter beauty and now I'm wondering if we will see a new one this year as well? I sure hope so. :)

Stay crafty mis amigos!
