Snowflakes are Winter's butterflies

A week wouldn't be complete if I didn't get my entry in for the All That Scraps Challenge. I don't try to hide the fact that these images are some of my favorites!!  This week for the challenge was Snowflakes.  Do you ever come across something and you absolutely have to put it on a card? I found these snowflakes at Walmart in the Christmas decorations isle.  You get 20 of them for $3. Can't beat that. I was bound and determined to add it to a card. Hey you can send a card, and your recipient can take it apart and hang the snowflake, right? Just don't tell me that you took your card apart!!  I actually colored a different image, was putting the card together, but needed a little smaller of an image so colored up another Sugarplums Christmas Angel to use on my card. I decided to use blues so that not only does it match this lovely Echo Park paper, but so I can add it to the challenge over at http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ which is to use Blue, and of course my snowflakes are blue.
Let me show you another angle. Hey when we do all that work, we want to show it off, don't we?
Now if you love the sentiment as much as I do, you can find it over at All That Scraps.  They are AmyR Holiday Greetings.  You will find these all over my blog.  I am really wanting her sassy sentiments set, that is my next purchase I think, it might even be a Christmas gift to me! Ok, the inside of the card is very simple this time. But you know I am gonna show it!

I didn't have to use a lot of copics on this card, but I used some of my favorites!
Hair: E030,31,33,35
Skin: E-000,00,93,95
Wings and Socks: E-50,51,53
Dress: B-91,93,95,97

That big glittery snowflake is an awesome find and it looks fantastic on your card.

Super cute card, I actually think it's the blue that makes it work so well-along with your fabulous colouring of course! I've just bought this image, as well as Trim the Tree - now I'll have to go and get them all coloured up and on to a card, you've inspired me yet again. I am very jealous of your snowflakes (especially as it's as hot as..., well you know, here at the moment). Dee
