Just Magnolia #70 & Winter Wonderland

Hi girls, thank you for calling in to my blog. How are things with you? - Well I hope. I see from my blog hopping that one or two of you are under the weather. Not for long I hope.
Back to the grey skies here yesterday but at least I didn't have a conscience about being in my craftroom.
I made this card for two challenges. Just Magnolia provided a great sketch and Winter Wonderland had the theme of "All I want for Christmas". I inked up Magnolia's "Christmas Eve Tilda" and coloured her using my Polychromos Pencils. The papers are Mt Mind's Eye "Colourful Christmas". The poinsettias are cut using a Marianne's Designs folder I borrowed from my crafting buddy Kathleen from The Daisy Chain. The ribbon and glitter are from my stash.
I hope you like this card. If you have a spare moment to leave a comment I would love to read what you have to say and if you've never left a comment before I would love to know you had visited so that I could return the compliment.
I hope you have a great day, enjoy your crafting and manage to stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
