Merry Monday #122 - Black, Gold, and Silver

Good morning friends.  I'm play along with the challenge at Merry Monday's today, and the challenge is to use black, gold, and silver in your card.  Not a color combination I would ever have thought of for Christmas, but I have to tell you that I have absolutely fallen in love!  The cards from the designers and players are all just absolutely stunning and SO elegant!  I've always known that I like black and silver together, but the black and gold has truly taken me by surprise and I just love it!  Here's my take on the challenge:




If you click on any of the pictures to enlarge them, you'll be able to see that I started with SU!'s Northern Flurry embossing folder on a black panel.  I stamped my sentiment (PTI's "Think Big Favorites: #21") with black ink on a Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle die cut, and then added 3 snowflakes that I die cut from Memory Box's "Giovanna Snowflake" die with silver and gold glitter paper.  This is a new die for me and I just love the small and delicate look to it!  I added a few gold and silver sequins to finish off my CAS card.  This would be a really easy card to mass produce, and I think I just might be making a quite a few more of these! :0)


You seriously need to check out all the beautiful cards over at Merry Monday ....you will fall in love with this color combo too!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderful Thursday!  (I'll be spending my day getting our youngest ready to head off for another year of college tomorrow...why does she leave everything till the last day?!!  Probably because she knows her mom will give in and help get everything ready and organized!!!!!!!!!!)
