Belles 'n Whistles Challenge - Sketch & Color

Happy Monday all and welcome to our newest Belles 'n Whistles Challenge! Our lovely Anki is our host and she made a great sketch! But wait that's not it, it's not only a simple sketch challenge , nooooo ;-)! She also wants you to use bold winter colors on your project! Ok here is the sketch:

And here is what I came up with using the sketch, bold (bright and rich) winter colors and the Snow Angel Snowbaby:

I colored with my Copics (see pic at the end of this posting) and the little snow piles next to her feet I made using Aleene's True Snow sprinkled with fine glitter (MS). The DP is from Bo Bunny's Winter Joy Collection. The Sentiment is Cats Life Press. The large snowflake is a Marianne Design die and I added stardust sparkle brad from Karen Foster. The snowman charm and silver snowflake is from my stash.

 The inside is pretty plain. I just added a punched out (MS) glitter snowflake and some matching rhinestones.

Here are the Copics I've used:
