Black & White Christmas

Hi - its time for another challenge this week over at http://christmasstampin.blogspot.co.uk/. I am on their Dt team and having a great time. This week our challenge is "Anything Goes" - Christmas related of course. Please go and look and join in with us for this weeks challenge.
This is one of my favourite stamps and so decided to try and use it for a Christmas card.
The stamp is a wooden etched one from - Coronado Island Stamps called "True Love" . I stamped it using a versafine black ink and then matted and layered it with black and silver card.
The snowflake is made using a spellbinders creatability die - one of my favourite dies I use over and over. I added some clear stickles to the black layers to give it some bling.   I added a Merry Christmas banner in silver and then tied 2 different ribbons in  black and white down the right. The gorgeous snowflake backing is from Grimsby Crafts. I finished the card off with a couple of silver gems. 
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
