Mystery Numero Due :o)

~Hello everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful True Season celebration with all your loved ones, and that today will find you content and relaxed, just enjoying the moment without the usual fussiness that can accompany this time of year. *Cheers!*

April is the wonderful hostess for round 2 of the Mystery challenge swap.
*You can find all the fine details here,posted by her:

She sent to all of us partecipants ,wonderful (and no longer mysterious) images of Spotlight Anya from TGF. April also challenged us to use an interesting flowery tape she sent along as an extra mystery embellishment. I have never seen anything like it...This was to be used on our cards as we see fit.
I chose to use such cute tape on top of the organdy ribbon and also on the inside of the card,on opposite dual corners.



I have to confess that this is the very first Anya image I ever colored and turned into a card.

Hopefully my friendly peeps like the end results...

I would love to know what YOU think...

  

Thank You so much April,
for such great and fun challenge!
Now I'm anxious to see what kind of mysterious images our next hostess (Gael) will surprise us with...and the fun shall continue...*yup* stay tuned folks... :o)

Yay Paola!!! She is be-u-ti-ful!!! The use of the tape is very clever as well. Great job. Hope that I can get one of these in my return.

Sama, Your card is fantastic, and you did such a great job with the tape, not like some SCS particpants who left the tape off.
