Purple Christmas card!

 I have to do one purple Christmas card every year for one of my daughters who loves and wants everything purple! It always presents a challenge to me, but I love my results this year.  I used "2 Christmas Tails" and fussy cut the bunny, leaving the mouse out of the picture.  I just wanted to simplify it somewhat because I knew I was going to be adding a lot of other "stuff" to the card. 
I coloured with the following Copics: 
Bunny fur: E50, 51, 53, V93, 95, BV20, 23
Hat: BV0000, 000, 00, 01, 02, 20, 23
Candy Cane: G21, 24, O blender
Inside ears and nose: R20, BV20, V93
Forgot to jot down the greys on the hat and tail! From memory for the hat whites: BV20, V93, C1, 2, and for the fur whites, W0, 1, 2, V93, E50.... pretty sure!
Whenever I put "snow" on a card, people ask me what I use, so click HERE if you want to see the product.  After it dries (takes about half an hour to an hour, depending on how thickly you laid it down) I add dots of glue all over it and then coarse glitter so that it sparkles.  It has no sparkle otherwise (and any of us who live in a snowy climate knows that snow sparkles!!). 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
