7 Kids Challenge - Winter Scene

I adore this KK Charlote stamp and had to find a way to give my card a holiday feel so I turned it into a little "altered art" dazzler from a stamp that wasn't meant for Christmas. I added Charlotte's gloves, boots, & earmuffs so she could run out to catch snowflakes without her coat and oops...a snowflake landed on her nose! Those earmuffs are a pair of tiny lt. blue pompoms and a strip of white cardstock!
I added lots of Stickles and Glossy Effects to give a wintry feel to my card. There are numerous MS snowflakes with faux aurora borealis crystals as centers. The small MS snowflake is very fragile so I coated it with Glossy Accents to help it stay together. The card stock is a juxtaposition of glittery and distressed treatments. The image was first colored with Copics then, for fun I coated Charlotte's dress and hair with irridescent Lumiere paint and lots of Stickles. The naughty little one looks very cold with so much snow and her pile of icy snowballs. I iced up the Magnolia snowballs with Stickles and a coat of icy Glossy Accents. I just love the palette of muted aqua, pink, ivory & silver.

I'm entering this in 7 Kids Winter Scene challenge.
