WOC & Hanglar/Stanglar/Magnolia Challenges

Hey there guys on this cool Tuesday morning!! not as nice and warm&sunny as it has been but hey we can't have it our own way all the time! Today i bring you a card i made from my sickbed last night, i wanted to enter 2 challenges so followed their rules,
Wild Orchid Crafts (which is my favourite shop by the way) i have a love affair bordering on an obsession with, and this challenge had to be 'White & 2 other colours' so i went for white (obviously) and pink & lilac, and im kinda liking how it came out! and the
Just Magnolia & Hanglar Stanglar (both co. are my favourite character stamps) challenge was to follow a sketch provided by the very talented Dena @ DENAS STAMPING CORNER so i followed the sketch and although its covered up in the main, you can just about see an extra panel behind the doily, i just wanted to point that out as its hard to see and if you dont know its there i wouldn't be following the sketch exactly! here is the sketch
So next is my card for both the challenges, this is the first time i have done a double challenge, hark at me, pretending i know what i'm doing in blogland!!! LOL..........so without further ado here is my offering for WILD ORCHID CHALLENGE BLOG and JUST MAGNOLIA & HANGLAR STANGLAR
