Simon Says Stamp Something Not Just Magnolia but hAnglar too with Polka Doodles

I have used the oh so lovely sketch by the oh so lovely Mina at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar challenge for this thank you card for some dear friends of ours in Prague.   The image is a hAnglar of course, coloured with Copics and Promarkers.  Stamp Something wanted us to use flowers, and Polka Doodles required two ribbons and a charm.   I am also entering my card into Simon Says who have a recipe challenge for 1 image, 2 DPs and 3 embellishments - I took this to mean 3 different types of embellishments rather than three items.
My ribbons are from stash.  The brown ones are actually the thin ribbons that stores put inside the shoulders of ladies clothing to help them stay on a hangar.  Needless to say, my clothes fall off their hangars all the time!  Flowers are Got Flowers and the papers are DCWV and K&Co.  I used a Stampin Up sentiment and a little "Thank You" charm to finish it off.  The leaves are cut with a Martha Stewart punch.
I still haven't got around to catching up on all my commentary since my trip a week ago but I promise to pop by soon.

Hi Lesley, gorgeous card, love your colour scheme and the adorable little hAnglar girl, your details are just gorgeous!!! You have to cut the ribbons of your clothes otherwise they stick out when you wear them, I've even cut the buttons of a jacket coz they were all I could find that matched the card - a step too far I think!!

So glad you could join us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge,
hugs
