MaMaw Skiing

It's time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments. This is challenge 98!  It's been a fun ride creating for this team and I can't wait to create more projects in 2014 with this fun team.   With this new challenge we are welcoming new members to the team.  Oh boy are they creative!
For this challenge we are sponsored by Inky Impressions
They generously gave the dt a couple of images to use. 
This card is my first Christmas card for 2014! 
 Yeah, one down only a million to go!
Not really, but it always seems that way when getting started with holiday cards.
Last year I came up with a new system to keep me organized and I had all my holiday cards made, addressed and ready to go before Thanksgiving.  I will be sharing that system with you tomorrow.
Card Details:
Image: MaMaw Skiing from Inky Impressions
Copics: E00, E11, E21, B00, B91, B93, B95, B97, BG10, BG70, R20, R81, R83, R85, R59, R89, G21, G24, G40, W0, W1, W3, T4, T7, T8, T1
Spellbinders dies
After coloring the image with copics, I painted the snow with extreme glitter paint.  I love how snow glistens in the sun and the paint is a great way to achieve that look with my cards.  I also stamped snowflakes around the edge and used a glitter embossing powder.  Since this card will be mailed to the recipient, I kept it simple without bulky 3D embellishments.  This will help keep the cost down for when it come time to mail all of my cards.
Entered in following challenges:

I really liked this image but thought I had better use the other one to even things up a bit, LOL. I love how you used the colours of your DP to colour your image. She is fabulous!!! A wonderful start to your Christmas stash.
