The Winter Blues

I am having such fun learning my Silhouette Cameo. Tonight my cute little card is made using 2 items cut from the cameo. First the tree and second the snowflakes. The design ID used in this project is #53197 and can be found online at the Silhouette Store. 

 I was using a sketch for this card as part of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge seen below. They have a theme this week called "Cold & Snowy" and I thought cute little winter snowflakes calling on sweet little Tilda was just perfect to meet this challenge.

Here is a close up of the Magnolia Tilda stamp I used. I colored her with my Copic markers and then fussy cut her out. She was a labor of love I tell ya!  
This card is being entered into the following challenges:
 (Tilda is staying as warm as she can in that scarf and gloves!)
