Black and White Christmas

This is probably the only card I made this week that translates as I had it imagined it my head.  Direct translation rarely happens, but after the previous two cards, I was glad to have something go the way I wanted.

Using the Card Patterns sketch for this week with the color and theme combo from the Cupcake Crafts challenge, I like the modern twist that this Christmas card took.  The black and white combo is so unexpected and I tried not to "cheat" by adding greys.  I kept it true black and white.  It was challenging at first but I had some good paper to play with visually.  I was afraid it would be too busy, but I kept the bolder bigger patterns for the ornament embellishments and left the simpler patterned paper for background.
