Black, Silver and Gold

For my Christmas entry to Merry Monday Christmas Challenge the theme was to use Black, Silver and Gold. I putted some glossy silver, glossy gold, matt silver, silver glitter, and black cardstocks. I used a numbers of dies:

Birch trees by Impression Obsession
Stars and Hearts by Simon Says Stamps   
Christmas Words by Paper Smooches
Snow Drifts by MFT                                                                                              

I also entered Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - 123 (One image, 2 birds, 3 colours=black/gold/silver), Deep Ocean Challenge – ChristmasChristmas at Sweet Stamping and Jingle Bells -non “Christmas” winter card



My card was selected as a Winner for the Holly Jolly 123 Challenge. As a winner, I also received three DELIGHTFUL stamps  from a wonderful digital stamp company called Oak Pond Creations. They have a wonderful assortment of digi stamps, gallery, tutorials, and sketchbook news. Make sure you check them out at and the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge!

  3. Tracey T says:

    Thank you for sharing your lovely card with us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin’. Unfortunately it doesn’t fit with our theme of “Gifts Galore” so I’m afraid it can’t be included when we choose our prize winner this month. However, it is a fabulous creation and I wish you lots of luck with your entries in other challenges. Hope to see you again at CaSS. Tracey
