Altered Anya and Friends-Quixotic Challenges

Afternoon! Sorry I've been MIA this week but we're all a bit under the weather over here which is why I'm late with my Quixotic Challenge DT card:) The theme for the next 2 weeks is 'Altered Anya and Friends', basically we want you to alter your Greeting Farm stamps in some way. Amy Young one of the fabulous Greeting Farm DT has joined us a guest this time-afterall she is the queen of altering:) If you need some tips on how to alter your stamps check out Amy's tutorials:

As this challenge is a bit different you MUST use Greeting Farm images (can be digis from heretoo) and you have 2 weeks to get your entries in. Also there will be a top 3 showcase and the winner will receive a surprise embellishment gift worth £10 from Quixotic Paperie. That's a great prize right?! Plus you'll go into the monthly prize draw too-can't be bad!

So anyways.. onto my card! My altering is very subtle and is ideal if you're a bit unsure or afraid of diving straight into altering-I've added spots to Miss Anya's headband. I've gone for quite a simple design as well on this card, using the Sketch over at Midnight Madness and just adding some pretty Prima E-Line flowers:) I did add some Shimmerz in pixie dust to the flowers though! All the papers are from the gorgeous new Crate Paper collection called Pink Plum which Quixotic Paperie have started stocking. If you want to grab some of the lush lace I've used on my card check out the selection here-am addicted to using it at the moment! Am also entering this over at Cupcake Craft Challenge as their theme this week is flower power.

Here's a little close-up:~

Think that's it from me, hope to be back again this weekend! We're going to see Alice in Wonderland tomorrow night and I can't wait! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments:)
