for my teacher

Good morning! I've been seeing the cutest Anya cards being made, and it's inspired me to pull out one of my favorites, Teacher Anya. I love this sweet image. I tried to photograph Sabrina holding an apple on her first day of school this year, and she kept wanting to take a bite out of it... I kept telling her that it was just a prop, but she wasn't having anything to do with that!

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #33 for my layout. I first stamped and colored Anya on white cardstock, then I chose my patterned paper which has cream instead of white as a neutral in it ~ do you ever do that? I swear I do it all the time! Instead of redoing my image, I decided to sponge around her to create an inner glow. I'll be adding this card to my teacher card stash!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
