Just Magnolia and hAnglar Challenge...

Hi all, I'm back with another card. This morning I was reading Jacque Beddingfield's blog and saw that Just Magnolia and hAnglar challenge blog has a new challenge using a wonderful sketch.

So here is the sketch...

Some time ago I had the time to sit and color a number of images. I colored about 7 hAnglar images to have them ready to make into a card. I just happen to be in need of a card to send to a friend to brighten her day, so I selected one of the images that were colored and got busy making my card.

Here is my card and entry into the challenge...

I have also entered my card into a few more challenges...

Papertake Weekly - Ribbons and Pearls
lovely hAnglar only - anything goes
Ai Factory - any thing goes

Here is a side view...

Here is a close up of this sweet image, whose name is unknown to me...

The inside is quite simple. I just repeated the theme of the front and added some Dew Drops to the flower centers (as I did on the front).
