Biking with Tilda again

I really like Biking with Tilda. She just has such a fresh free look about her. I paper pieced her smock and capris fro Infuse by basic grey. The rest of her is colored with copics. I even added a few shadows with copics on her clothing.  There are stickles in the middle of her flowers, her hair ribbons and of course her shoe laces.  Her bike has diamond glaze on it to give it an enamel look. The pedals and handlebars were colored with metallic silver prisma color pencils.  The butterflies were punched out and have tiny red rhinestones on them. The ferns are punched from a mcgill punch. 
I even decorated the inside - something I almost never do but this card is for a swap and I wanted it to be extra special.

Lest you think I forgot about Holiday Wednesday - I didn't I just didn't get to posting the card last night so here it is.
This stamp is from Penny Black. I really like it but it takes so much time to color. I did it all with copics. There is a bit of stickles applied because what is Christmas without some glitter. The lamb has fun flock on him. 
Thanks for looking. I love to read your comments so please leave some if you have time.

Hi!
Your Tilda is delightful. I can see the colouring and highlighting on her pieced clothing and you have done a great job! The card is so springy and has a most happy feel to it!
Your Penny Black Christmas card is delightful - what a wonderful image :o) I think you have coloured it wonderfully.
I had never heard of stamping with sweetened condensed milk! Wonders never cease!!!
