Totally Papercrafts #44 Non-traditional Christmas

Morning everyone.... Wow!! You all loved our Snow & Snowflakes challenge at Totally Papercrafts. last week. We had a fab number of entries, so, if you joined in, head on over there to see if you are the lucky winner, or maybe one of our Top 3.
This week the lovely Carol is hosting our challenge and the theme she has chosen is

Untraditional Christmas

So, step away from the reds, greens and golds and let's see something different.
Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp
Here's my card - Black & White - so definitely not your usual Christmas colour combo.

I found this sweet freebie image over at Ladybug and Friends ( scroll down the page for a full sheet of freebies).   I kept my colouring to a minimum, just adding a little grey shadow and some stickles glitter.
The DP is Papermania Mono and I coloured the gems with a black Copic. Ribbon was from my stash.
This was a very simple card to put together, and in real life it looks very striking. It's growing on me, but I'm not sure if anyone else would appreciate a black and white Christmas card!
