Sentimental Sundays 219 - complete card inside and out.

Hello everyone.

We've had a very busy couple of weeks here in the West Midlands.  My husband and I (well mainly my husband) is digging and landscaping the garden.  I have neglected my craft room for a few days, but I am pleased to announce it is now almost finished and my old familiar chair now has my bottom on it once again!

This week over at Sentimental Sundays our challenge is 'Finish your card inside and out'

Here's my card, finished on the inside to match.

This is my first ever magnolia card/stamp.  I brought the stamp from a Facebook craft group.
She's been coloured in a combination of promarkers and spectrum noir.  Almond - skin, duck egg - dress, caramel -  hair and then all shading done with various spectrum noir pencils.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts, and buttons from a seller on eBay, flower ribbon was from the rag market in Birmingham.  The tickets are stamps that I cut out, and the frame is a sizzix one.
The papers inside and out are from a first edition pad called blank canvas.

I'd like to enter this into:

Bearly mine - anything goes
Natalie and Amy's Challenge - Die cuts and flowers (die cut frame and lots of flowers)
Bastel Traum - colour combination

Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read my blog and leave some kind messages.
