Snowflakes at the club!

Hi all,
You know, it is a good job I joined this little Christmas Card Club otherwise I'd never get any Christmas cards made throughout the year!
I'm a little late posting this as it should have been up this morning - running late all round today!!
Anyhoo, I digress.  It was Sylvie's turn to choose the challenge at the Christmas Card Club this time and she chose SNOWFLAKES!
Here is the card I made:
The image is from the Greeting Farm and is called Winter Fairy.  She is coloured with my Flexmarkers and then I added glitter to both her wings and skirt.
Those little flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. They are basic white paper blooms and I have added some colour around the edges with my Arctic Blue Promarker.
The die cut is from my wonderful friend Susie Sugar - thanks darling!!
The sentiment is from a Penny Black Transparent Stamp set called Winter Wonders.
I used a pale blue Chalk ink pad to add snowflakes on my base card and on the die cut too.  If you look carefully you will see that my little brads in the middle of the flowers also have snowflakes on them!!
Lastly that gorgeous gingham ribbon is from........of course, Crafty Ribbons and you can see the whole range here.
Challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers - Monochrome Magic
Pink Gem - Fairies
Challenge up your life - Tone on Tone Monochrome
Crafty Hazlenut's Christmas challenge - Use and angel or fairy
