Black fantasy tree

I started by mounting my base card with some pretty green paper Jo gave me ages ago when we first met, and yes I have only just got around to using it, and yes, using my fabulous Penny Black fantasy tree again, this time I have embossed it with black embossing powder onto yellow card and backed it with black card, taken the corners out of the yellow card with my ticket punch, I dont have any yellow brads to punched out tiny circles from the yellow card for the corners. My sentiment was computer generated. I finished off the card with 3 black jewels and some black swirls. This covers the challenge for Mondays colour challenge at Stamp TV where had to use sage green, yellow, black and white, and also the challenge at Raisethebarchallenge where we had to use old designer paper.
Thank you for looking..
