Fleur Anya + Bliss & the colored stack

Hi all! I am here to share a card made using The Greeting Farm's adorable Fleur Anya.

I had a lot of trouble getting her hair right... This was my fourth try. It was a major coloring confidence crisis when I just couldn't get the lighting and shading right. I still am not loving this 100%... sigh... More practices needed!!

I paired her with digital patterned papers from Boutique Cute Dolls' super cute Bliss kit. I love the funky shape of the cloud and the fun patterned papers! All papers are from BCD's Bliss kit except for the green polka dot one. The sentiment is from this yummy Thickers by American Crafts. I also used the fabulous sketch Heidi Van Laar designed for Caardvarks' sketch challenge.

Remember my inch tall colored stack I mentioned the other day? I thought I would share it with you. Here it is:

I think it grew a little bit since I took this photo. I must have fed them pretty well! =) There are definitely some images that I don't even remember that I have colored... LOL! I absolutely love the fairy image from Mo's Digital Pencil on top of the stack and I think I colored her about 6 months ago... I know! One of these days I'll make her into a card, I promise! =)

That's it for now. Hope your week is off to an awesome start!
