Bah! Humbug! Challenge --- Things That Fly!

The Bah! Humbuggers! gave us a bit of a reprieve this week.  Oh, they still have a challenge for us, but I haven't been scratching my head raw to come up with a project.  You might remember last week's call for a CD/DVD to be in the project.  Well this week the challenge is simpler:  things that fly!  At Christmas this could be angels or fairies or even snow!  I chose a lovely snow angel that I found at Phindy's Place

 I used silver metallic cardstock for the card base, the border (MS scallops) and the frame on the image. The background paper is actually vellum that I crumpled up then flattened.  I really like the texture as a result.  The sheer ribbon has lovely snowflakes in it, accented by MS punched snowflakes. 

The image is colored with Copics B02, B00, B000 and B0000 for the dress.  The hair is Y21, Y25 and Y15.  Silver Stickles add sparkle to her wings, belt, shoe, and snow.  As pretty as this is, I really don't want her sprinkling any more snow until just before Christmas!

The sketch is from Mojo Monday this week, so I will be entering this in that challenge as well.

Thanks for stopping by! Now for a real treat, hop on over to Bah! Humbug! for the DT's beautiful projects.  But don't stop there, take a look at their Top Tip Tuesday.
