Card #1: 

I colored Princess of snowflake with Copics with skin tone combo E21, E02,E00,E000, RV000,R10, RV10.  It's hard to see all the glitters and sparkles but there's a ton - on fir trees, hair, gown and even on the embossed snowflakes layer.



Card #2

I used the same skin tone combo, but this time I applied another layer to get a darker tone, changed the blush color to R000 and R11 and gave her a more natural look by not applying any blue eye shadow.  Her hair and gown was also tone down to a lighter shade.  If you notice, I also trimmed the bottom of her gown differently than in card #1 and added a border below her gown, which is actually a birch tree laying down.
