Guylou's Inimitability - Snow Happy

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  It's super early and as you might guess, I hope I am still sleeping. I am here to post my DT card for the new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability.  The theme this time is "snow happy".  Gina is our wonderful hostess and she is challenging us to make a card that features snow.  Easy peasy, right?

Here are the challenge details:
Challenge Deadline:
You have until 10:00 PM (EDT) on December 27th to link your project to the Inlinkz at the end of the challenge post.
How to participate:
You may enter only ONE project per challenge, but if you use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp, your project will count for two entries.  If you don't have one of Guylou's digistamps, you can check the online store where several freebies are available.  
Challenge Prizes:
A winner will be selected randomly and will win:
1. A $10.00 gift certificate from Guylou's online store
2. An invitation to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers from from the Carta Bella Winter fun 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Serena on Skies from Guylou's Inimitability.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added lots of Crystal Snow glitter to her hat, jacket and the ground.  I uses two sentiments from Create With TLC.  They are both from the recent Winter Club.  I added more glitter to the snowflakes on the circle sentiment.   I didn't add any more embellishments, just kept it simple so the image was the focal point.  And there you have it!

Here is a close-up of the image:
