Anya in the Sun

Well after my last card I thought I would go in the opposite direction and head for the sunshine with Anya for the Roses on Paper Challenge Blog their theme this week is summer/vacation.
And over at Stampin´for the Weekend they are giving us a choice of 3 song titles to take inspiration from .....I chose Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks to inspire my Anya in the sun card.
I coloured Anya with copic markers and used glitter papers from DCWV citrus stack, I stitched all the pieces together on the sewing machine, the flowers are prima and the brad is by Doodle bug design, I also used one of my cuttle bug embossing folders for the back ground, I hope this card has warmed you up after my earlier Christmas card !! lol

So many wonderful ideas of things to make...my head is buzzing..where to begin?
