Black and white Christmas card - really nice in real life!

Hello bloggers,

Welcome aboard, Tracey... thanks for becoming my latest follower. Yaaaay!!! I have crossed the one hundreth mark - actually I lost some followers when I changed the name of my blog in the very beginning.

Aleeza is on autumn break so she keeps me and the telly real busy. Sometimes she keeps the telly more busy than I. Lol.
I have made this black and white Christmas card with a huge stamp that has been sent to me by a dear, dear blog buddy, Sandra. My picture does not do justice to the card - not one bit.

Base card stock - white
Stamp - from dear Sandra
Sakura silver pen - to touch up the stamp
Glitter glue - for snowflakes and silver embossed paper
Silver embossed paper - at the bottom
Sequins - from stash

Am going to enter this for the following challenges:

Hugs and have a nice Wednesday,

It's great! I think all cards are prettier in person than photos anyway. But this one looks just fine to me! Love the black and white and this is a great way to use a large stamp!
