Black and White Christmas

The challenge this week at Crafty Ribbons is Black and White, Now this was a challenge for me, but then I remembered a few weeks ago, while having a tidy up of my stamps, that I had a pack of Tim Holtz Christmas stamps that I hadn't managed to summon up the courage to use.....
So I had a little play and with the addition of some die cut snowflakes using my spellbinders die's and poinsettia die's (Marianne creatables?) using glittered cardstock and some fabulous black and white tartan ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, a selection of gems and pearls from KARS, Papermania and Basic Grey and a little star dust stickles on the reindeer and Santa's hat ...this is what I came up with.

I will enter this card into the following challenges;
Without words - getting ready for Christmas
LEJ - monochromatic
Top Tip Tuesday - seasons
Paper Shelter - Winter fun
Polkadoodles - Anything goes Christmas
Creative Friday - Christmas is coming
Totally Gorjuss - Anything goes with snow
Allsorts - Christmas cheer

Thanks for stopping by,
