Xmas is near :)

Hello scrappers!! How's life doing? I'm in such a good mood today, which is weird because I'm don't really like mondays lol you know, mondays mean saying goodbye to weekends, saying goodbye to free time, saying goodbye to sleeping in and getting back to work. Smileys Anyways, I'm happy because I received some packages on the mail yesterday!! Yey!! A couple of days ago I won a bid at ebay of 3 Martha Stewart punches at a very good price! I was in a hurry this morning that I forgot to take pics of the new goodies I received but hopefully tomorrow I will have a card to share with you and share the pictures as well.
Since yesterday I was very happy to receive my MS punches I was inspired and I created a Magnolia card, I used a Tilda image that Linda gave me, thank you again Linda! If you  have a chance visit her blog she creates beautiful cards everyday. I'm actually entering this card to 4 challenges!

- Just Magnolia Challenge - monochrome
- Simon Says Stamp Challenge - all that sparkles
- Papertake Weely Challenge - spots n' stripes
- ABC Challenge -  G is for green
- Cupcake Craft Challenge - sketch (I missed this challenge, I forgot it was due today lol I thought it was tomorrow)

So here's the card:
 I really love this stamp! I think is perfect for xmas, what do you think? Here's a close up of the image, I added a glitter dust to her wings and the gifts.


I colored this image with prismacolors. I asked my brother (who is an artist) to let me use one of his blending stumps...

I've seen many times how he colors and uses this tool so I had an idea of how to color this image. I think I'm getting better at coloring, because in the past cards I really didn't put much effort on the coloring Smileys. I really recommend this tool, it makes your coloring look much better, so if you get a chance to buy this tool, don't think twice!
Well I need to get back to work, I hope you all have a wonderful day Smileys.
Happy scrapping!
