Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge DT - anything goes!

This week's challenge at JM and H&S is anything goes with the added option of using ribbon. I used one of my new hAnglar & sTanglar stamps this week. I have used papers from the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby collection, distressed with walnut stain distress ihnk and stickles.

I have coloured the image with copics but tried to make it look like distress ink colouring as I have seen a few people doing this around blogland and quite liked the idea as I do love hAnglars coloured in distress inks but just LOVE my copics too much!

The beautiful sentiment is from the Stempelglede Just a Note set stamped with archival coffee ink. The flowers are Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves are a McGill punch that I am never using ever again as it is one without a lever and I put my neck and shoulder out for four days when I used it!!! Ironic given the sentiment I added LOL!!

I added some lush lace from my stash and a satin bow and ribbon along with a few pearls. I used MS doily lace punch along the edge of the pink paper.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at JM and H&S challenge! Pop over to the challenge blog to see my teamies' incredible cards!!! Thanks for looking! x
This card will be for sale on ebay from this evening.

This is just gorgeous Jane! Love the way you've coloured it to look like distress inks. I too love the look of distress inks but LOVE my copics too much.
