I'm So Excited I get to Host The Club Anya Mystery Monday Challenge this week

Mystry Monday Challenge Host for Club Anya

Hi Stampers, Friends, and Family!!!!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I can not tell you how excited I was a few weeks ago when my good friend the ever funny and sweet Jessica Diedrich /the Vice President of Club Anya asked me if I would want to host a Mystery Monday Challenge for Club Anya!!!!!  Of course I screamed YES!!!  LOL!!!!

For Any of you that might not know what Club Anya is..... you all at least know I adore, love, (and am obsessed) with all things - TGF.   The Greeting Farm Stamps and Club Any is the place for all of us The Greeting Farm / Anya/Ian stamp lovers to hang out play in Challenges and be inspired by the Design Teams wonderful, and majorly talented creations
So today it is my turn to host my challenge for Club Anya and here are the rules

Sketchy, Sparkle Me, and DSP Challenge:

On your project you must use these things -

Use a Sketch

Use 1 DSP

Use a Patterned Ribbon

Use at least 3 colors of Card Stock

Most important Make it SPARKLE

Read at the bottom of the post and see the amazing PRIZE you might win for participating in this challenge!!!  I get to pick the WINNER!!!   Woooo Hooooo!!!!

Here are the cards I made following the Challenge Rules

As I made these a few weeks ago so my sketch is now an old MoJo Monday Sketch and this is the one I used on the cards above and below.

For the Princess Card I used SU! Card stock in Pink Piuroette, Going Gray, Basic Black and I threw in some of the SU! Metallic Sparkly Card Stock and I used a DSP out of the Die Cuts With a View All Dressed up pack with has lots of glitter and Mega Sparkle in it!!!  The pictures do not do it Justice!!!!!

I colored Anya up using E50, E53, E43 and Y28 for the Hair - R00, E00, E93, and RV21 for the cheeks and skin - RV10, RV32, and RV34 for the pink in her dress and C1, C3, and C5 for the gray/silver in her dress and crown.

The Seniment is done using the SU! Modern Label Punch and I had wrote the sentiment on it.  I also used my Big Shot and Cuttle Bug Folder Hearts for the embossing and texture.

Some of the layers are popped up twice the depth and I used excess foam and rubber from my TGF stamps for that and some of the layers are popped up one times the depth and I used SU! Stampin Dimensional's for those layers.

Now for the Boy Version of the Sketch.  I used SU! Card Stocks in Taken with Teal, Celery, Basic Black, and the DSP is out of the same pack as I listed above for the DSP on the Princess card.

Ian is a combination of Edwards Body and Dress Me Ian's head.  I colored him up using these copics

E31, E33, E35, E37 and E29 for the brown in his hair and BG10, BG72, and BG75 for the frosted Teal Tips in his hair.  For his outfit and shoes I used G20, G21, G24, BG72, BG75, C2, and C5.  His Skin is E00, R00, E95, and E93 for his cheeks.

For the texture I used my Big Shot and the Cuttle Bug Folder Houndstooth.

I did the Sentiment the same way as I listed above for the Princess card and the layers are popped up the same way.

I tied my ribbon in a less frilly more manly way for this card.

Above and Below you can see the Patterned ribbons I used that I incorporated into the sketch rules too.

The Pink is a Darker Pink and a lighter pink in circle geometric patterns in it this ribbon is the most YUMMY double layered satin ribbon from Hobby Lobby I love love love it!!!  The other side is solid silver in color.

The ribbon below is a sea foam and teal colored ribbon with geometric crossed lines pattern running through it and the back side is also a satin silver ribbon love this think soft double sided ribbon!!!

You can also see above and below that I used that same SU! Modern Label punch to create the pieces to the left of the ribbon which is part of the sketch too!!!!

Now I thought it would be fun to share a few more The Greeting Farm / Club Anya Cards for you that I made off of Sketches just to give you the idea of everything you can do with sketches you can be really creative or really simple with them just make sure to have fun!!!

A Walk Down Memory Lane
