Black, white and gold

I haven't played along at the Color Throwdown challenge in awhile.  Though the colors are way out of my comfort zone (black hardly ever gets used around here), I thought that these colors were so elegant, and I can think of several people who I can send my card to this Christmas.

Color Throwdown #371

supplies: black, white, and gold glitter cardstock, Hero Arts Magical Background, versamark and Ranger gold embossing powder, Simon's Holiday Frame die, Wplus9 and Penny Black Snowflake Trio dies, gold sequins

Here's our inspiration:


And since I used glitter as a major part of my design, I'd like to enter this also into Virginia's final challenge at Virginia's View.


Thanks for stopping by!
