Simon Says Stamp challenge

This card started out as a "just because I need it" card and then I discovered that the Simon Says Stamp challenge is to make a card to give thanks - yay!!! I used one of the gorgeous sketches in the Magnolia Ink magazine, there are some gorgeous ones to use in there!

As you can see I've had another go at distress ink colouring, what do you think?? I'm still not happy with the results, I think I need better paper as the images just seem to look flat and dull, but I don't know if this is because I'm so used to the vibrancy of my copics or because of my paper! The image is Sweetheart Tilda. All the papers have been distressed with scissors, brushed cordoruy distress ink and stickles.
The roses are from Wild Orchid crafts and the rest of the flowers were in some candy I won so I don't know the make, sorry. The butterflies have been punched with MS Monarch Butterfly punch and I've sprayed them with pearl glimmer mist. The "thank you" sentiment I have written myself with a gold gel pen.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
