Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm so glad that after awhile, I was finally able to make another Magnolia card. I was able to find time to sit and stamp this afternoon, hence, a card for these TWO challenges:

- Magnolia Down Under Challenge#50 - Swirly Swirls
- Bizzy Becs June Store Competition - Winter theme, Bec also encouraged us to use the lay-outs she provided but it's not a "must".

I chose this lay-out for my card:

And here's my card:

 You can see the swirls (for the MDUC#50 challenge) on the dp that I used which is from Kaisercraft and the mat that I used behind Tilda was also embossed using Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder and since "winter" is the theme for Bizzy Becs Competition, what else can be more wintery than a Tilda with a scarf and mittens? ;)  I coloured Tilda with Copics.  I recently bought few pieces of Copics to add to my collection and used some of them here.  I'm still practicing how to colour Tilda's face but I like how this one turned out, somehow. LOL!

The background trees were from Stampin' Up Lovely As A Tree set.  I stamped it using Versafine Smokey Grey and lightly coloured it with chalk. Chalking was also done to create the sky scene.  To make it more look wintery, I embellished it using Liquid Pearls here and there to mimic "snow".  I actually used White gel pen at first but it didn't look good when it had dried up so I went over it again with Liquid Pearls.  Here's another angle shot:

The flowers are from Prima and the pine branch were created using McGill's branch punch that I purchased from Bizzy Becs few months ago.

Thank you so much for visitng and I hope I somehow inspired you with what I've created today.

God bless us all!
