Everybody Art challenge and my first Hanglar!!!

My oh my I have searched and searched and searched and (you get the picture LOL) and finally I have a Hanglar & Stanglar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yippee!!!!!! Isn't he gorgeous? I had to colour him IMMEDIATELY upon opening the envelope LOL. If anyone reading this has one of the girl Hanglars and tires of it (yeah right OK I know it's a long shot) PLEASE email me and I'll buy it from you!!! This card is following the gorgeous sketch at Create 4 Fun (which I've rotated) but unfortunately have missed the deadline for it, and the colour challenge at Everybody Art which is my favourite, brown, blue and white - LOVE this colour combination! The papers are K&Co Wild Saffron and I have distressed them with tearing and brushed cordoruy ink. I have also stamped a flourish from Stempelglede around the edges of the papers, image and flowers!
I've coloured him with distress inks.
I'm having to make my own flowers quite a lot at the moment as I have very few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts left and all the ones I want are sold out at the moment, but I have to admit I'm really enjoying making my own! I have used EK success retro flower punches with a button and jute string to finish.
For these three I've used EK success retro flower punch and Xcut daisy punch and some brads.
I have used the corner part of my MS punch around the page punch on opposite corners of the cream panel.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking!!!! x
