Cutie in Blue

We have had some unseasonably warm weather here the last couple of weeks but this morning we woke up to a white world. We had about 3" of snow overnight & the view outside our livingroom window was really beautiful. This little cutie is certainly dressed for the weather. She was one of the last images I bought from Pollycraft before the shop closed. I colored her with copics, which I am getting a little more comfy with. The DP is from Bo Bunny & sketch is from The Perfect Sentiment. I used Spellbinders ovals & scalloped ovals, snowflakes are a Recollections punch & the pine boughs are a McGill punch. I've blinged things up with diamond Stickles on the snowflakes & boughs.  This was the 24th Christmas card I have made so I'm getting there! How are you doing with your cards?
