2015 Christmas Card #21 - Black&Gold

This is the 21st Christmas card I've made in 2015. For my layout and colors I was inspired by the Muse Christmas card #15 - the gold and black really stood out to me.

I used a Christmas angel stamp from LOTV, heat embossed onto a golden paper, attached onto a gold/bronze colored corrugated paper.

At first I hadn't put any embellies on, but I wanted to add a little bit of red and green too, so I added some sequins received from Kim and some die cut holly leaves.

This card is for these challenges:
Muse Christmas Visions - #15
Winter Wonderland - Christmas Carols/Songs (hark the herald angels sing)
Fab 'n' Funky - #270 Things With Wings

Black and gold combination is very elegant, Pia and love this sweet angel, I also I have bought it times ago at the LOTV sale. I think that the little embellishment in red and green is very appropriate, a bit of colour looks well.
Have a lovely Sunday!
