My first Anya!

I finally gave in to the peer pressure and got myself some Anyas! What can I say? I'm weak when it comes to adorable stamps! It seems like everyone out there has these little beauties and I finally decided to just do it! Every girl needs a little treat for herself every now and then right?

So here's my very first Anya card... This was such a fun one to make. Before I could get started though, my daughter made me stamp out an entire sheet of Princess Anya's for her so she could color while I worked on my card. Needless to say, there is now a Princess Anya taped to EVERY wall in my house.

For this card, I decided to go to a 5 x 7 size so I could use my new Nestabilities dies and still have room to embellish. I added some mini pink roses by All Natural Accents and some Ghost Shape Stars by Heidi Swapp. To make them pop a little, I added some stickles to the stars before I attached them to the card.
For the crown, I used heat and stick powder with some SU Dazzling Diamonds and embellished with a few small pieces of bling. For the star wand, I used heat and stick powder with "cupcake" Sugar Coating by Doodlebug.

Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by today.
Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new way to Fool Your Family!
