Sweet Anya and I create a Mother's Day card

Hi! I stayed up late (ish) last night, talking with Annmaree (emu) and playing with paper... Perfect night really! Here is what I made -
I had the background paper out from another project, which I'd decided not to use, so I couldn't let it go astray. It is from the 6x6 paper pad Fabulous by Simple Stories, I've layered it onto some Crumbcake card and then set it aside to colour my little Anya. I stamped her on watercolour paper, using Staz On ink, and coloured her with my Stampin Write Markers, I also added a touch of shading to her skin using Tombow watercolour marker 990 (light sand.) I popped her to the side, and continued building my card. I cut out a doily from vellum using my Cheery Lynn French Doily Die, and glued it down to the patterned paper. I attached some hand dyed lace from D-Lish Scraps and added a button and a little bit of jute twine. I stamped the sentiment, from Stampin' Up!'s Friendly Phrases onto a piece of Confetti White card stock (sponged with River Rock ink) and attached it to a slightly bigger piece of Crumbcake before attaching it to the card base with small dimensionals. Lastly, my Anya, stuck down with higher dimensionals. 
I am entering this into three challenges - First is the Tuesday Morning Sketch which I have been meaning to get back and play with... Next up is the Ribbon Carousel "word to your mother" challenge for mother's day, and finally the Anyone for Anya? Lace challenge 
Thanks for popping by!

This is gorgeous Jess! I love the background paper, and the vellum doily on top is great! I must say, I've been seeing a lot of projects lately with a touch of vellum and I think it's time I pulled out my stash!! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
