CHNC challenge 32: black, white and one other colour - with a prize

It's time for a new challenge on my CHNC blog:

This time I'm asking you to make a Christmas card with black, white and one other colour. As this is the first Saturday in the month, there will be a prize for a randomly chosen winner - more information here. If you haven't already started making your Christmas cards, this is a good time to begin - and, for those of you who have been making them throughout the year, a good opportunity to add to your stock - the weeks go by so quickly that it makes sense to get some of those festive cards done.

For my card I've used the black, white and gold combo that I used the other day on this card. This one is quite similar - I just love this stamp so much that I thought I'd use it again for this card. The stamp is an inkadinkado one by Tin can mail, just simply stamped on to gold matt foiled card. This time I embossed the image with black detail. The background paper is some that came with a magazine (I've been hoarding it), scalloped on the edge on my rotatrim. The lovely black die cut panel on the left is one that I bought when we were at Maidstone recently. The sentiment is a Kaisercraft rub on.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Do you stack up 31: black with a pop of colour
Your next stamp 48: beautiful borders
Simon says: Christmas in August
PaperPlay 31: Christmas in August
ClearlyiStamp CIC 33: things with wings
