Black and White

Good Morning Everyone, 

Today is a start of a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu. 

This weeks theme is 

BLACK AND WHITE

Now when I first seen this challenge I was like wow that will be great, when I got down to making the card, boy did I struggle, then suddenly inspiration popped into my head and this is the result. 

To make this card, I used an A4 black card blank, printed a green holly and swirl backing paper, but printed on my black and white laser. I cut the swirly Christmas Tree out using my electronic die cutting machine, I got the file from Birds Cards, and I love the file, I selected my mat to 6x4 inches filled the mat with the tree then just copied it on to my 12x12 mat and the size come out perfect for this card. 
I matted the tree onto black and white card stock, stamped a sentiment out and embossed it in white, and matted and layered this onto black and white card stock as well. I finished the card with gems on the tree and six pieces of card candi. 

The challenges I am entering this into are:

Craftitude - Anything Goes -15/11
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes -  8/11


Thanks for stopping in and saying hello
