Simon Says ... Something New

Hi girls. Thank you so much for dropping in on my blog today. I hope you enjoy your visit.
Well I'm back after a festive holiday break. I hope you all had a great time and that Santa was good to you. I have not been keeping the best of health and he who must be obeyed insisted that I take a break from blogging and crafting. Although I still feel pretty drained I think I have been missing long enough and am keen to get back into the swing.
This is the only card I made while I was away at my son and daughter-in-law and I am entering it into the Simon Says Stamps Challenge where they want "Something New". I have inked up two Magnolia Club stamps that I have never used before and combined them to create Tilda sitting on a gift box. I coloured them with my Copics. The papers are from 5th Avenue and the flowers are from Wild Orchid. The doily is cut using a Marianne Designs die. 
I hope you like this card and if you have a minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think of it I would love to hear your views.
Have a great day and enjoy you crafting. Above all stay safe and healthy.
