Happiness - Zen Garden - Magnolia Card

I'm happy it's Friday, but this week passed by so fast for me.
For today's card, I've used "Chinese Tilda", but to me she looks more Japanese. So I wanted to make a serene, zen like garden scene.
I've added spackle of paints (dark green, light green, pink, yellow, and white) to the weeping tree paper background (DCWV)
The cute little bird cage and the fan charm really finish off this card nicely. Does it look "Zen" enough? I hope so. :)
Once again, I've colored Tilda using Prismacolor Pencils and Sansodor Oil.

I'm happy you have visit me today, Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments.
Wishing you a Happy Happy Friday.

Luv,
