Hanglar Sowester card

Hi folks!
I thought is was about time that I had a play with my Hanglars.... these poor little cuties have been a bit neglected of late. I made this card for the Tanda Teaser Weekly challenge (Russet & Gold) but I've just noticed that they changed their theme today. I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers. By The Cute and Girly, The Saturday Challenge and The Pink Elephant all want to see autumnal themes/colours. Stamp Something wants Brown plus another colour. The Cupcake Crafts is asking for Buttons and Stitching. The Creative card Crew would like Scallops and Cute Card Thursday has a 'Charming' theme.
It was a welcome change not to be making a square card. The Patterned papers I used were from an ancient Provo craft stack that I've had for years. I hand pricked then stitched around the edges. I used my Nestabilities, Oval and Scalloped Oval to cut the shapes. I coloured the little Hanglar girl with distress inks. The ribbon was cream and I coloured it with my Light Walnut Copic marker. I used cosmic shimmer paint to paint the larger Prima flower. The smaller one I coloured with distress inks and stamped over it with a script stamp. The charm is from my stash and I attached it with twisted wire. I coloured and stippled the button in the centre of the flower with a peel off pen and tied a string knot. I finished off the card with some cute heart buttons in the corners.
Ciao for now!

I love this card those papers are gorgeous and everything just fits so well together. Love that you coloured your flowers with CS. I must remember to try that for myself. I see so many great ideas on the blogs but half an hour after I log off I have forgotten them. Note to self. Buy a notebook to jot down tips and ideas.
