Totally gorjuss challenge 39

This is my 300th post and i have been blogging for just over a year, i am totally gobsmacked that i have been at this such a short period and done so much. I geuss i should add that i have been feeling rather flat of late, i do hope it isnt reflected in my cards.

I was at one of the local suppliers this week and managed to find a few things, which should have cheered me up, but sadly i am now broke.  Well on with the challenge for this week on Totally gorjuss we wanted a "thinking of You" card.  i decided to go with the thinking of you, but not to use that as my sentiment, instead used a WOJ sentiment, "hello friend".  I have also decided to use the sketch on Just Magnolia and the recipe from stamping for the weekend.

I colored my tilda with copics, hope the picture will help, used these teeny tiny new flat backed pearls i found, cut the two borders with a new Ek success border punch, added my flowers with lots and lots of diamond stickles, not sure you can see them.
Have a great weekend
