Miss Anya

We have a very fun Saturday Sketch for you over at Club Anya & Friends today and is a great opportunity to make a non-rectangular card! This was my first circle card to put through the Cuttlebug folded and it was nice that the Spellbinder dies are just deep enough to cut through booth layers of cardstock! I made this card using Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm and went with a soft pastel color pallet.

I used the Magnolia Doohickey on white felt to add some soft texture. Then embellished the card with small lily flowers made from clay and a silver dragonfly necklace charm. For those starting out your Copic collection, I used only two markers per color for the clothes, hair and accessories.

Did you know? "Like a Rolling Stone" is a 1965 song by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. Dylan struggled to find the essence of the song, which was recorded without success as a waltz. A breakthrough was made when it was tried in a rock music format, and rookie session musician Al Kooper improvised the organ riff for which the track is known. However, Columbia Records was unhappy with both the song's length at over six minutes and its heavy electric sound, and was hesitant to release it. It was only when, a month later, a copy was leaked to a new popular music club and heard by influential DJs that the song was put out as a single. Although radio stations were reluctant to play such a long track, "Like a Rolling Stone" reached number two in the US charts and became a worldwide hit. The track has been described as revolutionary in its combination of different musical elements, the youthful, cynical sound of Dylan's voice, and the directness of the question in the chorus: "How does it feel?".
