Magnolia vs Stampavie Challenge - Thank You sketch

It's great to get back into a routine after the holidays - all the decorations were put away on Friday and the house looks so bare now.

This week the challenge is another of Donna's fab sketches but also has to be a thank you card.

Still decorating the insides - this one I've kept simple with lots of place to write your thank-you's.

I've coloured the Sarah Kay image (from The Hobby House) with
Distress inks: Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Fired Brick
Twinkling H2O's: Chestnut Brown, Cedar Wood, Fern, Golden Jade, Hot Cinnamon, Sunburst
Punchees sed: Stampin Up Label punch and Wppdware 1" scallop for sentiment, Martha Stewart double dot punch for border on inside of card
Paper: Anna Griffin from The Hobby House
Flowers are Prima
The sentiment is from a Studio G cheapie set


Thanks for looking,

  19. Really lovely card Bev as always ... I think i have same questions as some of your other followers .. want to use charms on my cards but wonder where to get them and what bits 'n'bobs I need to hang them... also how to colour using ditress inks (do you use pads or is it some kind of reinker bottle??) Clearly you've got it all worked out cos the results are so fab :-)
