Black and white Christmas ...

... or perhaps it should more accurately be called black and silver Christmas with a bit of white. I apologise to Margaret who chose the 'black and white' theme for this fortnight's challenge for the Christmas Card Club. I hope I'm forgiven for the amount of silver there is.

All card/papers are from my offcuts box so this is my first card of the week for Pixie's crafty snippets 15.

For a change, the card is 7" x 5". The scalloped nestie die cut perfectly fitted a piece of the card matching the band across the middle and the Anna Griffin Season's greetings sentiment sat well on it. I then added some glittered ribbon and a large jet black gem.

This is for Merry Monday sketch 14 on Always playing with paper:



I'm also entering this for the following challenges:

Crafty ribbons 16: black & white with one other colour (silver)
Whimsy 33: use ribbon on your card
The pretty little ribbon shop 9: to die for - die cuts or punches
Bloggers challenge: to die for - die cut
Crafty Ann 62: Christmas in March
St Luke's April: sparkle
The crafty pad 165: it's just die-delicious

  11. Absolutely gorgeous Hazel! I love the colour combination - might encourage me to rootle through my black and silver Christmas card stuff, am sure there's some lurking somewhere in a box! And am also sure there's enough white for the challenge! I've been making a card for your White Christmas challenge here - but preparing veg. etc for tonight's feast is screaming to be done!

    Happy Easter.
