Christmas Card with Black Ribbon and Lace

This card started out with a totally different color scheme and design. Even though I often have a clear idea of the design when I start off,  I almost always end up with something totally different. I've tried out at least 10 different designs before I ended up with this one - that's probably why I'm a "slow working crafter"..

For this card I've used black lace and ribbon (at the top). I've used a rubber stamp from Panduro for the sentiment, and the image is cut out from design paper. I've added a red metal brad, 2 mistletoe stickers and 3 music note stickers, all with rhinestones.

This card is for:
1) There She Goes - Use a Sentiment as main Focus
2) Christmas Card Challenges - Use something new (note and mistletoe stickers)
3) Joanna Sheen Challenge - Try Something New (Black & White Christmas card)
4) Pile It On - Add Some Metal (metal brad)
5) The Crafty Pad - Show some Metal (metal brad)
6) Winter Wonderland - Ribbon & Lace
7) My Mum's Craft shop - #69 Christmas
8) Just Keep on Creating - Christmas
9) Simply Create Too - Anything Goes (2nd entry)
10) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

What an elegant Christmas car.I love the is so pretty.
The sticker holly, and musical notes are just perfect with this card.
The red brad is the crowning tough!
I want to try some black and white cards this Christmas too. I got a big bag of black and white embellishments at that garage sale and I want to try using them for Christmas cards.
I will have to remember your card when I do them!
