Tilda's Mitten

Hello, I hope everyone is doing good!  Today we got some more icky weather...started with freezing rain and ended with snow!  YUCK!  I'm glad I didn't have to go to school today; however, I was stuck studying....my first round of finals begin tomorrow and the last round ends on Thursday....then I will be on crafting time for a whole month!  YAY!  You can't begin to imagine how excited I am!

After studying for almost 9 hours straight today I decided I needed to give my brain a break and color....and my end result is this:
 
 I have been seeing lots of people making cute mitten cards so I thought I would give it a try.  I didn't have a template so I hand drew a mitten.  Then I had to ink up one of my new Tildas!  I wanted a non-traditional colored card so I used my new American Crafts paper.  Added some primas and punched snowflakes...of course had to add star dust stickles to the snowflakes for some glitter...then a cute mitten charm and my card was complete.

 
Tilda was colored with my Copics, accented with a white gel pen, and then I added Gelly powder to her hat.  I have her sitting on some fun snowflake ribbon.  I'm entering this beauty into the Just Magnolia Challenge this week....which is to create a Christmasy Card!
