Pink Winter Fairy

Here is my cute, pink "Winter Fairy Talva"by Mo Manning! I was able to put her on a card AND do the laundry! That's always a good day! 

I used My Mind's Eye Madison paper pad, my Silhouette for the die cuts and Wild Orchid Crafts for the metal corner which I painter with Picket Fence dabber and a smear of glossy accents for some shine! I distressed some of the paper and inked the edges of others with Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose Distress Inks. The sentiment was computer generated, since I don't have Christmas sentiment stamps yet :( I think I'll add some more distress ink around the sentiment now that I am looking at the picture. I don't know if it shows up much, but I snow white glittered the big snowflakes edges (wish I had put more). The image received the same treatment as the aqua version with both glitters.

Copics E50, 51, 53 & colorless blender hair; E50, 00, 11, R20 skin; RV000, R81, 83, 85 for clothes and C0 for shadow

Did I mention how I just luuve this image! So cute! Oh dear, I might just "have to get" her sister Halla, too! I love the idea of a pink Christmas card and I know exactly which lover of pink will be receiving it! 
Thanks for looking and please leave a comment. I enjoy feedback and I read every comment! 

P.S. I swear I have seen people use some fluffy stuff for snow and such instead of glitter and I would really like to know what it's called and where to get it. So, if anyone can enable this craft addict, please let me know!
