Miss Rain Anya and an award

Hello and how are you all today?
I've made this card for Friday Sketchers using their fabulous sketch and I used Miss Anya from the new releases. I bought mine from Tabby Crafts which has the most fantastic service. I bought this one afternoon and I was colouring it the following afternoon. I highly recommend Tab's craft shop and customer service. It's five star!!
I coloured Miss Anya with my prismacolour pencils and have stitched all the layers together. I have made the sentiment tag from chipboard. I painted it in white acrylic paint and then inked the edges with distress ink and the sentiment is a rub-on.
The gorgeous yellow-orange flowers are a gift from the fabulously talented Tara G. We did a little image swap and in my envelope were some fabulous flowers. Thank you so much Tara! Isn't it wonderful to have bloggy friends all over the world???
The inside is some of the papers and colours carried through. Simple!

Deb and Ruth ( sorry Ruth to take so long to acknowledge it!! ) have given me this fabby award. The rules are:
