Black and White

Hi everyone,
Sorry I haven't been about for a while, I've been ill and we've had a few family issues, so that said, on to a card that I made for the Cupcakecrafting 4 day deal last week. I planned to show it last week but best laid plans and all that.

For this card, I used a 7x10 card blank. The topper is from 'A Touch of Elegance' from Cupcakecrafting. I matted and layered the topper onto black card. The backing paper was taken from the same Cd and matted and layered onto black card.
 Before I fixed it to the card, I tied a piece of black ribbon diagonally around the backing paper. Once I had fixed the topper to the card, I placed two gems on the ribbon that was showing on the top left hand side.

On the bottom right hand side, I fixed two small black feathers and attached a black bow to the quills(?) (stems?).
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
