We are nearly at the weekend! 
Today I have a card I would like to share with you that I sent to a sweet friend to say thank you!

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. 

The stickles I have added are Star dust and Silver. I have used nestie dies for the circles. These and everything on my card has been distressed with Walnut Stain.

The border and leaf swirl are Magnolia Doohickey dies. The tiny flowers are Quickutz.
I have added some bandage around my card. So love this soft effect.

I have also decorated the inside.

Here is the inside left. I used a Magnolia tag Doohickey die. Letters are Hero Arts. EK Success punched flowers.

Here is the right hand inside.

Thank you so much for popping by my blog and for your visit!

I wish you all a most wonderful weekend!
