Allison's B & W Christmas Card Challenge

I am in a Holiday Card swap, there are 15 of us, WOW, well anyway have completed half of the cards and am mailing these out. I love this card, I cased it from Malieta, she has a great blog and creates some fantastic cards. Usually when you case a card you change the color, etc, well not me, it was so pretty the way it was the only thing I changed is the stamp, I used a Sentiment on the outside of the card, the base cardstock is black and the white is embossed with the cuttlebug snowflake. Well I was working on these cards this weekend and what do I spy, Allison has a Christmas Card Challenge going, and these cards are perfect for it. I kept the inside pretty simple as it is a swap card. Alison as I have just made 7 of these cards do I get 7 entries. LOL.
