This new challenge asked me to develop something I really want to do, but haven't tried yet.
Sooo, I have soooo long to do list!!
But then I decided to go with this one.
Can you guess what I tried?

Umm, yeah, I tried spotlight colouring technique!!
I saw this at Roberta's blog weeks ago. 
At the moment, I just think, "Waw, beautiful," and "Ah, I really should try this." LOL.
Having DDCC really helps me a lot, developing new things!
Here's the full card:

I also make a shaker card, plus using Tilda. I've workerd with digis lately, and kinda missing her, a lot. LOL. After working with new digis, Tilda really looks simple! :D
And, for the shaker card, I've never made any since months ago, that's why I decided to make one again. Shaker card is kinda fun :D

I used this special Tilda stamp and colour her with Copics.
You could see the detail of my new technique here.
I created a circle on the image, and only coloured the inside; made Tilda looked like on a spotlight.

For the embelishments, I added red and white flowers, since it's christmas.
I use traditional christmas colours.
And two pins!! I loooove using it lately :D :D

There's another new thing on my card. Bottle! Yep!
This cute thing was introduced by our lovely Julie. And yes, we're all kinda addicted to bottle. LOL. I put sand on the bottle, plus rope and red bell there.

Stamped a christmas sentiment there, and decorated it with half pearl, one of my favourite embelishments.

Doily and ribbon! My other favourite, LOL.
I also added bell there.

Well, there's more. Don't get tired reading this all yet. LOL.
Weeks ago, I saw Lisa's Pinterest and decided to add this on my card; handmade flourish :)

I really want to have one, but always think that flourishes are too expensive, lol.

All you need to make this is just a flourish stamp. 
Then stamp it with versa mark. 
Last thing to do is dotted liquid pearl on the pattern that versa left.
Simple, and magically done, beautiful handmade flourish! :D

This is the inside part of the card. I gave this card to my craft sister xxx
Kinda sad leaving her at Surabaya, while still get no clue when could I see her and her family again.
For sure I'm gonna miss them :( they're so warm and fun!! Ok, I already miss them :'(

I wrote quite much this time.

By the time you read this, I might be on my hometown already :D 
So glad that everything goes well; though some people dislike that I quited my job; but I don't really care. I know I'm not alone and you're all with me :) :) Hehe...

Don't forget to pop at my DT sisters' creations and join our challenge! It's gonna be fun seeing you there!! :D
And, at least, I do wish you a happy holiday! :D
