Black & White Christmas Card.

One of my lovely sister-in-law's loves black and white and to tie in with the freebie that Tams gave us and for Karen's sketch  challenge on MSE for Winter Wonderland I've come up with this card. (three in one, not bad!)

The main tree image is from Tams, as above and printed and then cut with a plain circle nestability.  I backed the image onto black card from DCWV.  The design paper is from Pink Petticoat printed in silver.  Ribbon and lace from my stash and the droplets are part of a ribbon trim I've had for years and never known what to do with.  The sentiment is my own and both are cut with SU punches from Monica. Card candy from Craftwork Cards.

I'd like to enter this card into the following:-
