Christmas Card; in Black and White, LOL!

Hi everybody!!
How are you all? :)

This late November really run faster for me :)
I have a lot of things to do and happened. Life changes, and things should be go on.
I'm moving to my hometown at the end of November. I have lived in Surabaya for 5 years, leaving things here makes me kinda sad. There are a lot of things happened, whether good or bad, but that's all make me who I am. 
Things come and go. Some stays, some leaves. Well, that's should a life be, eh?

Sooo, today I'm gonna share an unsual card; for more spesific Christmas Card.
Bet you've never seen any in black and white. LOL.
Here's the things, I have a lot of things on my "to try list" and so little time to explore.
My Magnolia Winter Wonderland is just arrived, and in the other hand I can't wait to play with them!! They are way too cute.

So, I decided to pick this cute The Day Before Christmas Stocking Tilda; yes this one got quite long name LOL. I'm kinda missing Magnolia after quite some times using digis.
Days ago, I saw Samantha's creation with this chalk effect; decided instantly that I should try this amazing technique. I personally like it :)
Before made it to card, my friend and I practice and share the result :) she also made one with chalk effect. 

Anyway, here's my card:

Here's the detail for the chalk effect.
Somehow Tilda looks quite scary. LOL!
I stamped her with Versa Mark then emboss her using white embossing powder.
Also added white gesso around her :)

For the embelishments, I added white flowers plus a pin. Lately I addicted to pins! They're just gorgeous, simply fit everywhere :D 

Half pearls and doily are a must on my cards :)
I also added snowflakes that are punched from MS Punch. 

There's more!!
I made my own washi tape!! :D :D

It's so simple and super easy to make.
All you need is just a paper tape. Then I stamped "Merry Christmas" word.
Tadaaa, my very own washi tape is born! LOL.
I added liquid pearl too there :)

I'd love to enter this card for:
Dutch Magnolia Lover #68 - Light it to make it cozy in the dark; personally think that white in the black would make it cozy. LOL!

That's all for today.
I'm quite tired but eager to talk alot today. LOL.
Hope you patient enough to read all of this.
Wishing you all an amazing day! :D
