Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge

It's another fab sketch this week - I do love working to sketches, I think it's my very favourite kind of challenge. I love seeing how each card made for the challenge is so different from the next. For example MichelleO and I have used the same stamp for this weeks challenge yet both cards are totally different. Both of us have flipped the sketch, but each in a different way!!

Apologies for the bad pic, I hate these dark days!! The flowers are the same colour as the pomegranate colour of the paper (I coloured the flowers with Purely Pomegranate ink) yet they look tomato red in the pic argh!!

I went with some gold mirri card to try and brighten up the card as it was so dull with the dark colours - not sure if I like it but I'm calling this one done now.

The Sarah Kay image which I got from Sparklybits has been coloured with the usual distress inks/H2O's. It's a fab image to colour - really quick and easy to do.
The papers are Anna Griffin. I didn't have a narrow enough ribbon for the top of the card to break up the red so used the ribbon pattern off the paper and made a paper bow.
The sentiment is a Sizzlets die

I have also received two awards today, this one from Tanya, Joane and Suze - thanks for thinking of me sweeties xx

And this one from Moni - thanks so much for the award hunny xxx

I would love to pass these on individually but am so snowed under with work just now so if you're reading this and don't have either of these awards please help yourself lol.
