4 challenges and 2 awards

Here's a card I did yesterday but didn't manage to photograph until today, what dismal weather we're having here!

I'm entering this into 4 challenges:
Penny Black: Song Lyric - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
I love ProMarkers - Sketch
Allsorts - Bling
Susie's Sassy Designs - Christmas

The image & sentiment are both Penny Black, coloured with PM's and I've added SU! Dazzling Diamonds to the snow and around the edge of the puddle, I've also glittered up the snowflake (from a punch) by using SU! Heat & Stick powder (this stuff is great for preventing the glitter coming back off the card everytime you look at it LOL) and more Dazzling Diamonds, so I think I've got the bling factor covered! The papers are from my stash and the cardstock is SU! Elegant Eggplant, which is fast becoming one of my new favourites - and I don't even like purple, but am loving this!

I've been very lucky to have received two awards, both from my Sophisticat DT buddies Cheryl & Avril, thanks so much to both of you for thinking of me, it's lovely to have these awards and I'd like to pass them on to any of my followers that would like them as a big thank you for your continued support.
