Black & White Christmas

I made this Christmas card for the black & white challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges. The base of my card is black. I a piece of white cardstock embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). I cut a strip of patterned paper and backed it in black cardstock. I used the freebie image Dustin Pike made for this week's challenge. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I backed the image in black cardstock and added a black pearl to the corners of the image. I finished it off by adding black pearls to both corners of the bottom of the card.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
