52CCT - Colours ....

.... Morning! It's time for our colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT23-16. Jacqueline has picked a monochromatic theme of BLACK, GREY, WHITE AND SILVER - she wants us to use only these colours on our cards. I had fun with this one:

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - All Occasion Sentiments, Dandelion Dreams
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Brilliance - Starlite Silver
Dies: Spellbinders - Fleur de Lis Squares (S4-318) #4; Waltzingmouse - Snowflakes #2, #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Silver Mirri Card; Stampin' Up Card & DP - Black; Anita's DP - Classic Black Christmas Papers; Gem


I really like these classic colours - they make for a very elegant card. I die cut a large ornate square from from silver mirri card - I know it looks copper in the image! I cut some text design paper which I layerd on black card and adhered inside the frame. I die cut some snowflakes from card and design paper and attached them to the card. I added a single gem to the front. On the inside I cut a mat layer of the same design paper and on the white panel added a greeting and some silver snowflakes. I'm submitting this card to Inkspirational - INK#110 where the word is TEXT and also to Jingle Belles - JB:16:12 where they want to see Snowmen or baby snowmen (snowflakes)!
