...nerdiness the reverse

Sharing a card featuring the now retired Anya Nerds Out from The Greeting Farm.

This card is going to one of my staff for her birthday and the stamp was bought especially for it.  As soon as I saw it, I thought of my staff member, Anya looks just like her, well, OK, no, she doesn’t wear leg warmers but the rest is spot on!

The layout of my card follows the sketch over at TGIF.  I did shift the placement of the sentiment off to the left though, just so I didn’t cover up Anya’s feet as it looked a bit weird when I paced the sentiment box over them.  The sentiment is from the Uniquely Creative All Occasions set.  I also thought the sentiments on the Kaisercraft paper really worked for my staff member, she reads widely and likes to take inspiration from what she reads.

The sketch was perfect for adding a border or two so I could also play along at Creative Knockouts.  I’ve created mine on the cardstock I stamped my image on using all three of the dies in the Mama Elephant Fine Trimmings set.

Over at CraftyFriends they want to see projects for ladies or girls, which my card certainly is.  So, I am also linking it up there.
