Cute Card Thursday #139

Hi girls. Welcome to my little corner of blogland. I am so pleased you found time to call in to visit. I hope your weather is holding up. The temperatures are dropping here but thankfully no sign of snow yet. Well the good news is that after 10 weeks I now have the catheter removed - the bad news is I don't think the kidney infection is completely cleared up but I hoping that I'll feel better over the next few days.
I made this card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge following the marvellous sketch Susan provided. The image is Magnolia's "Christmas Eve Tilda" and I have coloured her using my Copics and Polychromos Pencils. The papers are back to back papers by Bo Bunny - "Winter Joy Bundled" and "Winter Joy Stripe". There is a horizontal purple strip under the green ribbon and I punched it with a Fiskars Holly Edge punch but it is difficult to see in the photograph. The flowers are by Wild Orchid and the ribbon, gold spray, gems, stickles and glitter are from my stash.
I hope you like this card and I would really appreciate it if you could find an extra couple of minutes to leave me a comment to let me know what you think. I really value your opinions.
Thanks so much for your time. I hope your day goes well and that you stay safe and healthy.

Love and Hugs,
