Sweet Anya

It's another Mystery Monday at Club Anya & Friends and today it's my turn to host! I chose to CASE a great card by Claudine Poch that featured a versatile layout for any occasion. This is also my last challenge as the January Guest Designer and I had so much fun being on the team! So with big HUGS, I say "Thanks TGF and Club Anya!!"

I made this card using an all time favorite Sweet Anya, of course. I also wanted to use some cork and thought it would be fun to cut it out using the lace doily die - it turned out better than I had hopped so I'll be borrowing that die from my Mom again! :D If you're keeping track of my details on painting the chipboards, I covered this wing embellishment with Liquid Pearls again. It appears to be my favorite method but I have yet to get my embossing powders out of the closet. As a final touch, I added glitter to a few areas of the clothing and white polka-dots on the shirt.

Did you know? The Low Head Lighthouse is Australia's oldest continuously used pilot station and was the third lighthouse to be constructed in Australia. The original tower, 15.25 meters (50.0 ft) high, was known as the "Georgetown Station" but by the 1880s, the original stone tower had fallen into a state of disrepair. It was demolished in 1888 and replaced with the present double brick structure with a new lantern room and apparatus. This light is now unmanned and automated.
