Another Mystery Solved!

Hello
It's time again for the Mysterious image to be revealed.
 I'm a part of a group on SCS that loves a good Mystery. We have a different hostess every couple of months that sends us images. We then make cards with the image and then mail them back to the hostess. She in turn, swaps them out and we get cards back (that other ladies in the group have made with the same image) along with the next rounds mystery image. It may sound a little confusing, but we make it work. It's a great group of ladies.
This round was hosted by our sweet Linda.
She sent us this darling MFT image. I've never worked with them and now I'm hooked.
I colored the image with watercolor pencils and blended with my blender pen.
Linda also sent the brown CM cocoa paper I use on the card base. I decided to make my card base smaller than usual. I placed the image a taller than the base so the card would fit in a regular A2 envelope. 
The snowflake accent is made with 3 SU! punches and a white brad. I popped it up off the card with dimensionals. 

Until next time...
Blessings...
