Living it up in Vintage Style !!!

This Anya really is living it up in Vintage Style !!! Look at her go !! lol
Yes another calendar well its that time of year isn't it !! and they do make great little gifts.
Now this one really isn't my style I don't normally make things in what I call drab colours like dark browns and greens but 2 challenges called for vintage this week so this is the result.
This one I coloured with promarkers and added little golden faux gems from Kaiser, flowers from Tabby crafts, the glittered DP is from MME and the sentiment is a Tim Holtz Adage ticket.
Other things I used; Distress ink from Tim Holtz, a Martha Stuart boarder punch, some glimmer mist I used to spray the flowers and lastly a little srinkle of glamour dust on the flower to add a little sparkle.
I have entered it in the following challenges;
Passion for Promarkers challenge Vintage
My Time to craft challenge Vintage
Anyone for Anya Challenge Fake it !! I used fake gems and flowers
Craft challenge A gift to give at Christmas
Thanks for dropping by , have a great day

I really like this calendar, I think it's vintage without looking too drab. She has an air of cuteness and suits the colours you've done her in.
Happy crafting
