DD#79- Black Tie Week

Hi crafty friends!! Sorry that this post is up so late. I forgot to schedule it earlier in the week and I have had a busy Saturday with my little man. My husband took our oldest camping this weekend. I think they needed a little man time. You know like things to do with fire, knives and wood. I'm more than happy to stay home and entertain the 3 year old.

The challenge this week is so elegant to me. I had so much fun making my card. I was able to pull out some embossing powder and make things shiny. That always makes a girl happy. Shiny and silver!!

I will admit that I did panic a little when I looked in my paper stash and realized that I didn't have any Smoky Slate. Not even a scrap so that I could add it somewhere. I placed an order right away! Hee Hee! That's when I decided to just go with silver, black and white. You can never go wrong with those colors. 

This card makes me smile. From the silver trees to the white snowflakes falling. It's just festive. If you ask me what I'm going to do with it I have no answer for you. I may add it as a decoration when I put my Christmas decor up. I have quite a bit of cards that I can do that with as I have made a lot of cards the past few months. 

Hope this card inspired you to pull out your black and silver stuff and make a Christmas card. We would also love to see you join us at Dynamic Duos this week and show off your talent. 

Check out the rest of my friends on the design team. Lots of talented ladies that I get to work with every week. I am a lucky girl!
