Winter frost warning with Magnolia :)

I recently started my collection of Magnolia stamps, and to be honest, for a long time, I didn't really like the looks of them.  But, let me tell ya,. they really grow on you!  Now I am totally in love with Magnolia stamps, and here is a retired one that I've used to create a winter wishes card.

This was a super-fun image to color, I just wish I knew the name of it.  If you happen to know the name, please leave me a comment!

I colored her with my fabulous Prismacolor Pencils and I also used my Wink of Stella Clear Gold glitter pen, and my Gelly Roll white pen:

Hair:  PC1069, 1072, 1076
Skin:  PC927, 1081, 939
Socks:  PC938, 1061
Pajamas:  PC936, 1088, 1027
I used Prang (because it is a harder pencil, which I like to use for the finer details) to outline the facial features.  The bench she sits on was done with PC1076, and the blue around the oval with colored with the same colors as her pajamas.  I also used the Gelly Roll pen to put in the falling snow and snowflakes.  The Wink of Stella I used to highlight the lace on her pajamas, and also just around the outside of the blue oval as well as around the very edges of the die cut.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

The East Wind - Baby it's Cold Outside
