Snowflakes are winter's butterflies

There is absolutely no hope for any natural light today. There wasn't any yesterday. I decided to give up waiting and just go ahead with one of those horrible, color sucking flash pictures or I'll miss some of the challenges this card was made for.

I never used this color combo before, but what can I tell you? I absolutely adore it. The BV Copics were a little bit uncooperative, one of them is a little overfilled (but I got it like this from the shop) and that gave me some troubl, but I think all in all it came togehter quite well.

As always you'll find the list of entered challenges below the recipe part.

Stamps: Magnolia & Whimsy Stamps
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog
Cardstock: Bazzill Thunder & Windy, pearlescent card base
Design Paper: Magnolia Sixpence

Punches & Die Cuts: Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Whimsy Stamps Snowflake & Ticket die and Nellie Snellen die
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon: 6mm and 3mm white organza from stash
Other: Shimmer spray on some of the flowers, white embossing powder

And these are the challenges I'll enter with my card:
