Tilda with Violin 2

Hi there Magnolia friends! It's been 290 days since the last snowfall here in Chicago. And it's gonna end today! This afternoon, we are expecting a winter storm and about 2-6 inches on snow. Are we prepared for the snow? Yes, we are! I have some carrots, a hat, some twigs, gloves and an old scarf... We are prepared to make a snowman! LOL Every winter, me and my son make a snowman in front of our house. I'm hopping this time we can make a big one.
For my card today, I have Holy Tilda with Violin from the Nativity Collection 2012.  I colored Tilda with Copics and I used a very light ink pad to stamp the image.  I wanted to get that no-lines effect but my ink was not light enough to blend with the Copics. This was one of my first no-lines technique tries and I just forgot to share that it is on a card. 
I was aiming for a neutral, cream and brown color combo 
with a little touch of light blue (from the DP which I totally have no idea what it was), Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used dies from Tim Holtz, Magnolia DooHickeys and Cheery Lynn

I have a couple more cards to share before Christmas and I made my last Christmas card for my Magnolia Advent Calendar  shutter which you we see a couple days after Christmas.
To those of us who will be hit by the "Thunder Snow Storm" this afternoon, PLEASE be careful and drive safe.
I'll be back again tomorrow with another card!
Thanks for visiting!
