Magnolia vs Stampavie, first time for me...

I made a card today for the 80th birthday of a gentleman in the USA... I thought the sketch for this challenge was quite nice for this. I am not sure now if I really like it, though... It is all black and white with silver apart from a bit of yellow thrown in for the stamped image and the kraft cardstock. 

"Magnolia vs Stampavie sketch challenge"
Card recipe:
Paper: Dovecraft Charcoal prints
Inks: Versafine (Onyx Black), Distress Ink (Vintage Photo, Mustard Yellow, Tatterd Rose, Black Soot ), Brilliance Starlight Black 
Stamps: Waiter Edwin from Magnolia 
Other: Ribbon from a christmas cracker decoration, Ranger Glossy accents, Papermania brads, Nestabilities curved rectangles, Nestabilities double ended tags, computergenerated sentiment, big button cut off an old cardigan, kraft cardstock (PTI)

Ooops, just noticed that it had to be a Thank You card to be able to enter it... Oh, well, never mind!
