Mystery Challenge

I am very fortunate to be included in a group of gals that have formed a mystery image swap. Every other month we receive a mystery image or embellishment (or both) and then create four cards from the mystery item(s) received.

Our hostess this month, April, sent us Anya in the Spotlight from TGF (one of my favorite stamp companies). I cased a layout from a note card that I made at a stamp club in November and then added Anya to it as well as the inside sentiment. The sentiment is from a SU set called Word Play and the crown is from the SU set, Artistic Etchings. And if you haven't tried the self adhesive rhinestones from SU (can you see it on the crown?) you just must. I love both those and the pearls.

Thanks for looking.
