Give Thanks! Marvelous Magnolia 1st DT Card

Good afternoon to all my lovely followers and visitors, it's another scheduled post from me today,  another 2 hours till I'm done with work today.

As you know on Monday I shared a card as GDT for Marvelous Magnolias, well imagine how delighted I was when the lovely Rina asked me to join as a permanent DT member?!  I was over the moon, I do so admire the work of all the ladies there.  They have given me a fantastically warm welcome and as I have joined the 'Dreamy' team and it's our turn to post this week, I beavered away at the weekend to produce something special for them.

The theme this week is Give Thanks, so we'd love to see your thank you cards or cards to celebrate Thanksgiving.  We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK unlike our American cousins, so my card is a simple (well ok, maybe not so 'simple' lol),  thank you card, here's what I made.

I love this yellow colour for a thank you card, the gorgeous paper is Pion Design, For Mother collection.
I've distressed it lightly and inked with Vintage Photo DI, then hand stiched with yellow top stich thread.

This little cutie is Pink Ribbon Tilda (though obviously she's Yellow Ribbon Tilda here lol)
I've coloured her as usual with my Copics:
Hair: W7, 5, 3, 2
Clothing & Ribbon: YR 24, 23, 21, W2, 0
Shoes: E44, 42, 40
I've used just a touch of frantage in Shabby White around the image.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Pearl pins, lace, ribbon, button, twine and bling from The Ribbon Girl.

I've decorated the inside of my card with matching paper to complement the front.

Dies used were: 
 La La Land Crafts Heart Tree
Spellbinders Labels 4 and Gold Labels 4
Whimsy Noteables 4

The sentiment is from the Whimsy Everyday Sayings Noteables 4 set.

The butterflies were cut with an X Cut punch.

I'll be popping this into my
