Magnolia vs Stampavie - week 8

Magnolia vs Stampavie's challenge this week is a Thank You card/sketch.
I think this is one of my favourites of the winter/Christmas Magnolia collection. I coloured Tilda with Prismas - why grey - I just wanted to try her with little or no colours and I think I like the effect. I coloured the flowers (SU) with Copics, I have tried inks but like copics, though I could do with a better selection. I have been tidying up and reorganising my craft stuff, I do wish I wouldn't - I cannot find my Thank you stamp anywhere, after about an hour going through everything I gave up and computer generated the sentiment and used SU frame. I use a silver/white thread to stitch the basic papers (HOTP) and silver/grey on the frame for Tilda. I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace and Leone Em branch punches and brad and ribbon from stash.
