Simon Says Just Magnolia and Hanglar and Stanglar challenges

I had time to play yesterday and make a challenge card :)
I wanted to join in with the challenge at Simon Says Stamp where the challenge is coffee and cream, and as I decided to use a hAnglar and sTanglar image, I checked out the Just Magnolia and hAnglar and sTanglar challenge where there is a fab sketch, so I followed the sketch and used the coffee and cream colours.

 Of course the sweet image is a hAnglar one and is coloured with Promarkers and then sponged around the image with antique linen distress ink.
Not sure where the flowery paper came from, I found it is my scrap box, so no idea about that one. The sheet music is from an old Viola music book which I spotted one day in a charity shop window lol. It was white so I inked it with sime antique linen distress ink, and the brown strips are from Papermania.
The ribbon was a light gold colour and didn't quite go with the colours and I couldn't find another ribbon to match, so I inked that with the antique linen ink as well...... that ink pad really got a good work out on this card lol.
The flowers are a mix from my stash. Some were white, so they got inked as well and then I added some stickles to them al for a bit of sparkle and some pearl sprays which I pulled from some other flowers that I have had in my stash for months.

A little close up of the cute image.... I am really loving these hanglars just now :)

You can't really see the sparkle on the flowers but in real life, they are very sparkly.
Oh and the haf pearls round the image were an after thought. I had a bag of them sitting on my desk and was going to do a swirly flourish type thing with them, but thought that might be a bit much, so just added them around the image instead.

Sorry I didn't get round to announcing my followers candy yesterday, I totally forgot about it! So will do that today at some point. Got to go find something to give away for my next candy and take a pic first.
Not sure what it's going to be yet.....hmmmm, how about a set of stamps???
I will see what I come across that I can part with lol.

Thanks for stopping by
