Black and white Christmas

I love black and white cards, so it was no trouble to make a card for Crimbo crackers 6: black and white. The background is a piece of wallpaper, so this is also for my own CHNC challenge 54 to 'give something a new lease of life' - recycle something - also for St Luke's January: new year, new start - to give a new lease of life to something.

The glittered and silver foiled stockings are from an old kit, the glittered stars are left overs from an Anna Griffin kit and I can't remember where the sentiment came from.

This is also for:

Christmas cards all year round January: non-traditional colours
Sparkles forum Christmas 12: Christmas stockings
The pixie cottage 102: monochromatic
Pixie dust studio 108: mono-tize-it
The craft garden January: monochrome
Drunken stampers 80: glittery holiday
Card caravan (the hybrid chick) 10: sparkle
Some odd girl: bling me - glitter and silver foiling
Let's craft and create 35: anything goes
House of gilli 23: anything goes
Cupcake craftroom January: anything goes
Papertake: anything goes
Blog a doodle: anything goes
The paper shelter 45: anything goes
Bizzy Becs January: anything goes
Art impressions 46: anything goes
CES 67: anything goes
Gingerloft 31: anything goes
Lexi 56: anything goes
