Black and White again...

but for a special reason. My theme of Black and White Christmas Cards was chosen for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge.

I am looking forward to seeing all the wonderful ideas and designs and visiting everyone's blog.

Card Supplies:
Card blank and matting: Stash.
Half pearls: Mark Richards.
Bling: Poundland....bargain!
Ribbon:Par Market, Cornwall.
Sentiment: Hunkydorycrafts.
Backing paper: stash.
I bought the image years ago from Ollie Doodles, Costa Blanca and have no idea of the design.It is still one of my favourites and comes out most Christmases.
I used Momento ink and then used my Sakura gel pen to put glitter on all the shady parts. Sorry this doesn't show very well in the photo. I find this really lifts a dark image like this one.

Thank you for visiting...please become a follower if you want to...I love visiting other blogs and any comments are much appreciated.

Have a special week.
