A gift from the heart..

Hiya all, i just can’t believe that it is Tuesday already! I hope that you all have had a good weekend..
We have been having a mass clear out of our loft.. oh my word, what a lot of stuff.. well the charity shops had a load and the tip had a load too and the Loft is pretty empty..  but because of this i have had no time to make a card, so this morning i have got my rear in gear and made this quick one to share..

I followed the sketch designed by Emma over at the  Sunday sketch and stamp challenge blog . and because hanglars are one of my favourite things I thought that i could also enter this into the Just Magnolia challenge blog as well..
I have used papers by basic grey bitter sweet paper pad, which i have gone round the edges with sewing, the flowers are mixture of wild orchid crafts, the sizzix 3d rose die, and my last crochet flower that Bev made for me an age ago.. put the crochet flower on a felt flower and added a button to the middle.. the leaf on my card i think is a prisma, but i am not sure, the stamens are from my stash.
the pretty pink ribbon is hug and snug seam binding in ash pink.
The Hanglar & stanglar image was coloured using copics.. I have added the colour combo’s below..
Thank you for dropping by my blog today..
Hugs Rach..
Copic colour combo’s used:
