The Greeting Farm - Cuddle Anya and I create a Birthday Card

Hey Hey! I got some happy mail in the post today, which included a stamp from The Greeting Farm (it was on clearance, so I believe it has been retired) Cuddle Anya. I was itching to colour her up!
Isn't she adorable?!! I coloured her with my Stampin' Write Markers, Blender Pen and on Watercolour paper. I then fussy cut her out. I then got my papers together, the music paper is from Kaisercraft, and the yellow spots is from some off cuts I had (so, I don't know what it's called) I grabbed a ruler and a fine tip pen and did a bunch of doodling around the patterned papers and the Nestabilities frame. I attached all the layers together, and grabbed some really nice horizontal stripe ribbon from Ribbon Carousel (can you tell how much I love this company??) I stamped my sentiment in VersaMark, and embossed it in black. For the full tutorial, check the video below, from my favourite crafter Danielle Daws
Isn't she clever? I wouldn't have thought of this..... 
Anyway, I'm entering this into three challenges, the first is the Music challenge from Anyone For Anya?, next up is the two anything goes challenges, the first from Ribbon Carousel, and finally the challenge from Simon Says Stamp.
Thanks for popping by!
