Monochrome Anya, and a late card!

I actualy started this card for the Cupcake challenge which was monochrome but I ended up not getting it finished so I turned it into my dt card for Charisma Cardz where the theme this week is cards for a teenager.
As I said in my last post, I'm trying to use my older stamps/images, so I used an older Anya for my card and made it really girly :)

 The butterfly paper is by Papermania, the one under Anya which has crowns on it is the reverse side of a 12x12 sheet by Best Creation Ink. The charm is off a charm bracelet (very cheap one lol) and I thought it went well with the crown paper, but I have covered most of the paper up lol.
The 3 roses at the top are from, and the ones at the bottom are Primas and a rose by papermania. Ribbon and lace from my stash and Anya was coloured with the usual Promarkers.

I just realised that I didn't post last weeks dt card for Charisma.....ooops!! So here it is now (sorry Carly!)

The challenge was to use die cuts, so I used die cut shapes from Die Cut Dreams to mat my image on.
The sweet image is from Pink Cat Studio and as always was coloured with Promarkers.
Stripy paper is by Craftwork Cards and the pink was one I got with a magazine ages ago.

The ribbon was white but I coloured it with a Promarker and the flower I made using some organza fabric.

I used my heat gun on the edges of the fabric and stuck all the layers together with a brad......easy peasy :)
A few people have asked me before how I made these kind of flowers, so if enough people are interested, I will do a little tutorial. Just leave me a comment if you are interested in me doing a short tutorial so you can see exactly how I made them :)

Thanks for stopping by
