A hAnglar for Sketch Saturday

I finally found time to use another of my new hAnglar & sTanglar stamps. This one's a commission, and I think this stamp is perfect for a card from a man to his wife don't you?? I have used the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday. The paper is from the Basic Grey Indian Summer pad and I've distressed them with Walnut Stain distress ink. I was asked to make larger cards than my normal 6x6 so decided to use two contrasting layers of cardstock so it didn't look too out of proportion. I must say I really like things to be symetrical so love my square cards LOL and it just felt wrong making this size LOL!!

I have coloured the image with copics and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink. I added some faux stitching with a silver pen.

These cute hearts and ribbons were stamped with a hAnglar stamp I already had which goes perfectly with this new one - how cool is that!? These are also coloured with copics.

The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist and the heart is another of the hAnglar ones but I cut the ribbons off.

I've used a fancy tag die for he sentiment which I've hand written. The pearls are from the Hobby House.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

OMGosh! Another gorgeous card, I just adore looking at your blog...cannot wait to see what you do each time you post something new. My absolute favorite is Robin Hodd, I love it, I love green so was drawn to it anyway.
Had to giggle at the 6x6 cardstock as thats the only size I use too, it's hard to change after using it.
