Black & White Christmas card

Hi i am back with a Christmas card made with the candy cane die from Tonic Studios.
I previously did this in traditional colours and decided to try and make one that looked totally different. So went for Black and White.
If you would like to compare them the link to the other is HERE  

and a flat view showing the layers and fluffy stuff

This time I kept the die in the card instead of cutting out theedge. Added glitter from tonic round the edge and layered onto black card.
Added a sentiment stamp in the middle and some diecuts bells with white paint and fluffy stuff. Finished with Black ribbon and Ivy diecut corners. A Black nuvo drop in the corner.
Well that is another card for my box it is starting to slowly fill but needs many more.
Please drop me a comment and let me know you have stopped by and maybe say which you like best.
Thanks for popping by.
