Black and White

Evening Folks
Bit late posting this evening but went to the cinema to see Breaking Dawn. Just love it and can't wait for the final film.
Anyway here is a card I have done. My sister has put in a request for some christmas cards and this is the first one I have done for her.
As you can see I have gone for a black and white theme.  The center image was created using a set of tapestry stamps that I have.  Just done in black ink and embossed, then some glamour dust added for extra sparkle.  Then used several layers of black and white card (some of the layers I embossed).
Added some mock stitching round the outside, some die cut and punched snowflakes out of glitter paper, a sentiment, some pearls and glamour dust.
Here is a closer view of the center and the sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Totally Papercrafts #93 - Black and White
Bunny Zoe's - anything chrismassy with pearls
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - challenge 128 use sketch
Divas By Design - Challenge 15 monochromatic

Thanks for looking and any comments appreciated.

Hey, Mags, it's me again!! Just to let you know I'm changing my username to MagsB so there'll be no confusion - since it's your nickname in real life and mine just online, I think it's only fair!

What a super, striking card! Very chic!
