Christmas in Black & White

Hi, just one more Christmas card to share with you for now, using the same Penny Black stamp as last time, but in white twinkly ep with just a hint of silver, which ended up absolutely everywhere (not so clean & simple after all!).  I'm not sure which I prefer, white or gilded.

A closer look
I have stamped both the image and sentiment in VersaMark and embossed in WOW White Twinkle embossing powder, then mounted onto some black glossy cardstock.  I have punched a hole through the top and some white ribbon threaded through (I've seen Marie at Dolly Daydreams do this on one of her cards for decoration and it looked great, so I thought it might work as a little reinforcement for my tent cards) and added a clear gem to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Moving Along With The Times - Let It Snow
Crafters' Companion - Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
Creatalicious Challenge - Christmas and Make Sure It Sparkle
Glitter Fairies Challenge Blog - Non Traditional Christmas (no red, green or gold)
Crafts and Me - Simples
Oldie But A Goodie - Let It Snow

That's all for now, I hope you like it!
