Penny Black Challenge ~ Week 54

Hi everyone! At last i'm back with a card!! This one is for the current challenge at PBSC.............
I have actually done something on this card that i haven't done for a long time...............i've used embossing powder on the image..... to keep in with the challenge and also because i don't have any Memento ink yet and i wanted to use my new Promarkers. Not sure why i thought this would work................. in fact it hasn't!! it's still a bit smudgy round the edges, but it's all a bit trial and error with them at the moment :)
I embossed the image with the Swiss Dots folder after i had coloured it.......i quite like the effect it gives...................
Image.... PB 'Snow Cuddle'
Colour.... Promarkers
Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots
Papers.... 3 Bugs in a Rug (i think!)
Rub -on.... Stemma
Lg Snowflake.... Cricut
Small snowflakes.... punch with no name!
Glamour Dust

I used my current sketch from my new challenge blog for the's a bi-weekly sketch challenge and you have until next Tuesday evening if you would like to join in :) Hope to see you over there!

Have a great Thursday.......
