Blonde Xmas sprite

This is a digi from Make It Crafty called Pipi Petal Sprite.  I colored her mainly for their Blonde challenge but I am so happy with her I think I will put her on a card and enter her in a few others.  I colored her with plans for a Christmas card in mind.

She is colored with Copics. Here are the color combinations I used:
E000 E00 E11 R20 E04
E50 E51 E53 E33 E35
V000 V04 V09- purple Spica
BG10 BG13 BG23 BG49
N2 N0, in her eyes
stippling was done with W5 W3 W1 and V000

I am entering her in the Make It Colourful Challenge- Shades of Blonde, and also
Make It Colourful- Creases and Folds, I dont know that there are a lot of folds but...
Kit and Clowder- clothing challenge

Here she is added to a card. 

The snowflakes and tree are done with Sizzix dies, the little ones are Cuddlebug and cut from white card stock that I covered with glitter with my Scor tape. Bling from Michaels.  The stamp is a rubber mounted from Stampin Up and inked with Tea Stain distress ink. The glitter "snow" is Stampendous called Scintillement.  I got it last year during the holidays and it is my favorite!  Its a pack of 5 and they are all so pretty.

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
