Black and white christmas

I'm running out of time to upload this card:

I would like to enter the card into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas
Christmas Inspirations - Black and White
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Snowflake
CHNC - Anything Christmas
CHNC - For A Child
Clear It Out Challenge - Anything Goes + Snowflake

I have used a background paper from a paper pad.  The image is from Crafty Sentiments and coloured with copic markers and Stickles - Black Diamond and Diamond.  The snowflake is a Spellbinders die cut from black cardstock.

When you do things in a rush, it pays to take a breath and check what you are doing!  I had another older card open and accidentally linked that one up!  I noticed with about a minute left on the challenge and managed to make sure there was a link to this one.  I have posted a comment that #184 needs to be deleted but thought I would add it to this post too!  I had a few issues when completing this card as I couldn't find my black markers.  I ended up using a paint brush with re-inker dropped on to it so that I could colour the leaves.  I'm pleased to say that it worked!
