Sugar Bowl #15 - Gayle's Sketch

Am revisiting a few of the past colour challenges  from Passion for Promarkers, and these are the colours that Caryn chose a few weeks ago. I thought they were ideal xmassy colours, so here's an addition to my xmas card collection for this year. I  have used  Gayle's sketch over at the Sugar Bowl, and have included the added extra which was ribbons or bows.

Image: Snowflake by Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers: Ivory & Blush for her skin, Moss & Olive for her hat, trousers,coat and muff; Poppy & Maroon for all the polka dot trim and her shoes; Sandstone, Cinnamon & Cocoa for her hair.
I distressed the edges of the card she was stamped on with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked the edges with papermania ink pads.
The paper was a freebie from a magazine last year sometime, the wide red ribbon is from my stash and the narrow red xmas ribbon is Anita's. The poinsettia is an Anita's Dimension sticker layered up.
I didn't think the card needed a greeting as it says Merry Xmas on the paper and on the ribbon.
Here's Miss Snowflake's close-up.. NB this was an image I had lying around that had been stamped with Stazon, hence why the black lines are a little blurry.
