Merry Christmas..Challenges, Challenges!

I've combined many challenges with this card. I always seem to be a little behind so I'm trying to catch up a little.

This card is for the Supply Challenge at Kimmie's Pink Cat Studio Contest. There are only a few days left so hurry and get your cards in!!

This is also for Allison's B&W Challenge for Christmas. Allison is offering terrific blog candy on her Fabulous blog.

I made this card with the SC145 Sketch Challenge and the WT135 Bling Challenge:

I had a great time making this card......it didn't take very long at all...and I am so surprised that a B&W card can look Christmassy.

Here's my card:

Stamps - Inkadinkado

Ink - Versafine Black

Paper - Whisper White and Fiskars Black CS

Accents - Glitter, bling, ribbon, cuttlebug embossing, cuttlebug snowflake die, paper piercing.

Parts of the cuttlebug embossed snowflakes have glitter (mainly the circles of the flakes). The die cut snowflakes have glitter on them. I used the xyron to glue the snowflakes on the black CS.

Have a Great Day!! and Thanks for looking!!!
