What fun colors! Becky picked such wonderful colors and I love them together! I don't have the exact colors, but I found some inks and Copics which are very close and they seemed like good winter colors to me, so that's the direction I went.
I'm so happy and honored to be a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge this month and no one was more surprised than me, lol! And along with the colors , I included the dessert of splatters.
After masking a wide band, I stamped the winter trees in black and added a circle mask for the moon and used torn paper mask snow and sky areas. I sponged on the two inks for the night sky and and a little of the teal for the snow. I added some shadows and used the white ink and splatter background to add the snow. A white gel pen was used to bring out some of the splatters a bit more.
I added the narrow strips down the sides (colored navy with Copics) and the greeting in the lower right. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Julie, this card is so beautiful and everyone can surely appreciate the warm wishes with the tremendous cold weather many are experiencing. Into my favs. I've got to work on practicing some scenic sponging!
