Black and Silver Christmas

In the heat of summer it's nice to think cool thoughts and make snowy Christmas cards. I thought the color challenge to make a Christmas card with black and silver or gold would be fun to try.

I still have some CTMH Snowhaven paper that is black with a pattern of snowflakes.  I added silver foil paper, a silver glitter paper snowflake from Cricut Flower Market, silver shimmer trim, silver sequins, and a transparent strip with silver dots (the other side has gold dots). I even traced the white sentiment from a CTMH Silver and Gold PML card with a shimmer brush but the glittery shine didn't show up in this photo.

Thank you for visiting! May your crafting bless your heart and your gifting bless others.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Psalm 138:7 (WEB)
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you will revive me. 
You will stretch forth your hand against the wrath of my enemies. 
Your right hand will save me.

I do like that snowflake paper. Keeping all the colour tones the same makes a very smart card but with sparkle too. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT

I love how the silver and black remind me of deep snow and ice and cold weather! Stunning card and thanks for the cool air memories it gave me as we swelter in the heat in southwest Mississippi! Thanks for playing with us at Ike's World Challenges this month!

Hoping you would share with us at Double Trouble Challenge as we are pairing up with Heart2Heart's "Christmas in July", and you don't need a fold card because it's only an option for Double Trouble.
