Black and White Christmas

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. It is gray outside here, but not that cold. I just got back from a nice walk. You do not often see a black and white Christmas card, but I must say that is rather striking. At Joan's Gardens this week the challenge is to use black and white, Christmas and frame.

The frame is a Spellbinders die -- Decorative Labels 8. The leaves is a Memory Box die -- Fresh Foliage. I used an embossing folder with a frame on the black card stock and used Belgian Cream embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle on the image.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
