Santa's Hot Chocolate

I can finally share the card I made on Monday night with my crafty friends, now that I have a new, cheapie camera!
This week, after our tea and home made strawberry fudge cake, we all made cards following the same sketch.  I used a new stamp from Dovecraft's new Santa's Workshop range, coloured, as usual, with Promarkers.
 I'm still getting the hang of my camera, so I'm sure the pics will improve over time!
I've used Lili of the Valley, Krafty Christmas papers, combined with a splash of festive red and green.  The lacy mat was made with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the snowflake was made with a Diesire Die.  A few gems and pearls finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Divas by Design - Christmas in August
Robyn's Fetish - #172 - Lots of Layers
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations - #54 - Die Cuts and Punches
The Squirrel and the Fox - #50 - Whimsical
