GDT Card for Lexi's Creations

I was lucky enough to be asked to be a guest designer for Lexi's Creations for their current challenge which starts today.  The theme is "Snow" and I got a choose an image to play with, I couldn't resist this lovely digi which I've coloured with Promarkers.
I don't make many DL cards but I felt this image was screaming out for a tall, thin card.  I chose to colour her in shades of blue and brown so I could use my two favourite paper packs from this year, Krafty Christmas and Frosty Christmas, both from Lili of the Valley, which I teamed with dark brown card.  The sentiment is from a Papermania stamp set.  I used Liquid Pearls to create a snowy backdrop to the Christmas shopper and continued the snow theme with a wooden snowflake which I liberally glittered with Glamour Dust.  Some beige ribbon, a bow and some blue Card Candi finish it off.
