Bah Humbug Challenge- Surprise Surprise

Good Afternoon Everyone, 

Well here is a card I have just made for two challenges one challenge is the Bah Humbug Challenge Surprise Surprise, this challenge leads us into created anything we like providing it is on a Christmas Theme, the second is from a Do Craft Demonstrator Gill who asked us to create a card or scrapbook page using the theme black and white.

So the card I made is a Christmas card, the card is a square white card blank with a black matting covered with a white backing paper with black and gray dots and squares on, then onto that I have placed a ribbon down the edge and a tiny piece of ribbon put into a not at the top. On top of this mat and layer I have created a further black and white layer with the white being embossed through the Cuttlebug machine.  The main image is cut from the Cricut machine using the Home Decor cartridge.
The sentiment is a Peel Off that was coloured in using a black pro marker, and to give the card a bit of bling. I have used some gems on the topper to give it the wow factor.

I think the card is simple but elegant and another one to add to my Christmas Collection.
