Tilda in Black and White

Hi all first may I thank you with all my heart for your concern for Polo, I am one very happy lady as I think the new tablets the Vet gave me for Po are beginning to work, thank the Lord.
I actually managed to make a card last night for some challenges, I am so behind with making Christmas cards that I have been very naughty and bought some, that is the first time in several years that I have done such a thing. 
Here is the card that I made which I would like to enter into the following challenges:

For my card I have used an 8x8 white pearlescent card base, the papers are Bearlymine Extreme Vol 3, I have used one of my beloved Tilda images from last Christmas and coloured her with Copics. all papers and image have been mounted onto black card. 
I added some silver sparkly snowflakes, black and white gems, lace, pink metallic elastic twine and bow. 
The above picture shows a sideways view of the card. 
The letters of 'Joy' I stamped with black momento ink, I then stamped a snowflake onto the letters cut them out and glazed them with Glossy Accents.

Below is a picture of my handsome boy Polo, I took this yesterday and he is able to stand now which is such a huge relief and my prayers have been answered. 
I have started to do my commenting but it will take a few days to catch up but I am so enjoying seeing your beautiful creations, they are giving me some much needed inspiration, I have missed you all and I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends, thank you all so much.
Hugs to all see you a little later.

Lorraine, Tilda is looking ever so gorgeous in this card. As for Polo, what an awful journey you have been through/continuing to go through. Thankfully though your prayers might have been answered with the pills. I can't say I know how you feel as I was never allowed pets as a child but all I can equate it to is how distressed I've been over the years when the kids have been poorly especially twice when we nearly lost our eldest son when he was 2.5 and 13 with bad asthma attacks. I shall keep my fingers crossed as I know Polo has helped you through many a time and continues to give his mum all the love and support he can. Sending extra special hugs to you and healing hugs for Polo. Take care, Kym xxx
