My first card on my blog so I hope I do it corectly! This was inspired by the Crafters Companion Challenge 5# and Bev's extra challenge of an Untraditional Christmas. It certainly is a change from my normal red, green and gold Chrismas colours.
The background came from A Winter's Tale CD. Which I printed out in black and white and enhanced with Spray and Sparkle.Then added panels of silver mirri card and glittered black card.
A circle of white 3D illusion film backed with black and white paper makes a base for the decoupaged and glittered  tree topper . I added a few silver snowflakes to both the front and back of the illusion film but it's a shame the film doesn't have the effect on the photograph that it does in real life,
Hand made pink poinsettia and holly add a dash of colour.
