Got Bling?

A couple of years ago, my mother in law received a black and white Christmas card - she was outraged! ' why would anyone send a black and white Christmas card? It's awful!' I was so glad I hadn't gone monochrome that year!! I actually think black and white can look really elegant; traditionalists probably wouldn't agree, but each to their own.
It's not showing too well on screen, but I have gone a bit mad with the bling with this card - I made my own paper and added Perfect Pearls Mist, used stickles on the die cut poinsettias, then a few diamant√© to finish.
