Just Magnolia and Roses on Paper challenges

There's a gorgeous sketch on the Just Magnolia challenge this week I loved working with it so much, thank you! I've also managed to combine it with the challenge at Roses on Paper which is to use hearts as I've hung a gorgeous heart charm from the bow. This is another commissioned card, hence the name in the sentiment! I'm getting a few commissions now which makes me feel extremely proud and makes it all worthwhile.

I used another of the gorgeous summer kit images I was sent, how cute is this one, I so wish I'd ordered this kit now as there aren't any I don't like and I'm going to have such a hard job deciding which to get. I have added some faux stitching all over with my white gel pen. The sentiment I have written with my trusty calligraphy pen and I have added some pearl luster rub on over the top.

The gorgeous heart charm is another from the Hobby House, it is so intricate, just love it. I will have to up date this post later with the inside as I have to colour another image as the lady would like a money pocket inside. Thanks for looking! x

Edit! Here is the inside, I decided I didn't want to use another of my precious images of this cutie (I don't actually have the stamp) LOL, so decided to stamp the Magnolia new year swirl in green and add a couple of the flowers from the summer kit instead. The quarter circle is a money pocket, I have punched flowers with my EK success flower punch and cut them up to make the scalloped edge.
