Daughter of the Fog and Snowflake

When I went searching Google for an image suited for a winter scene I found this beautiful sketch by Chibilink6 on Deviant Art called Ice Queen.

The artist had kindly allowed people to colour the image and I loved it so much that I have used it on my card.  I like the fact the sketch is rather raw with some of the lines picked out in blue.

I think she is perfect for a winter scene challenge as I imagine her creating snow through her breath so I’m entering this card in the current challenge at Through the Purple Haze.  With the snowflake embellies and on the gorgeous designer paper from BoBunny I’m also entering this at 4 Crafty Chick’s current challenge.  To make up my card I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
