Not a tradtional card for Challenges

  I make all my Grandchildren a Christmas card and I was struggling a bit for my 12yr old grandson,I wanted Christmassy but not babyish if you know what I mean so decided to make one in his fav football team colours ...Black and White  certainly not a tradtional card but I like the effect.
This time I have used a rubber stamp,coloured with promarkers the DT paper I made my self  in photoshop and finished off with a printed holly border.
I am entering this card into the following Challenges None Traditional Xmas Xmas Tradtional Colours Black,white with a splash of Colour Xmas Goes Goes Santa
