Charisma Cards #47 - One for the Girls

Hi girls, it's good to have you here. I appreciate you taking the time to call in.
When the weather forecast last week said snow by the weekend I was not expecting what has arrived. We have 15 inches (measured with a ruler) in the undisturbed back garden and it's still falling. The roads round here are chaotic, the shelves in the local supermarket are empty of milk and bread and William has a full time job clearing the driveway. He has been piling it in the front garden which is now so deep I think we'll still have snow in June Lol. It must be terrible further north because we are normally better off than the likes of Aberdeen and Inverness. Maybe we should start a challenge for piccies of everyone's snowy gardens.
I made this card for Charisma Cardz challenge where the theme was "One for the Girls". I have inked up Lili of the Valley's "Time for a Cuppa" and coloured her up using a mix of my Copics and Polychromos Pencils. The background design paper is one I printed out from a CD Rom I have and the two panels are a GDC double sided glittered paper. I used a bazzil base and the scalloped nestie surrounding the image is from the same bazzil. The ribbon and gems are from my stash.
I would love to know what you think of this card so whether you like it or don't like it I would love to hear from you if you have a minute to leave a comment. I love reading what you say and I always find your comments helpful.
I hope you are all kept safe and healthy at this difficult time. Thank you so much for calling in and be sure to come back again.
Love and Hugs,
