Clean and Simple Christmas

Hello peeps, how was your week-end? Mine was quiet and uneventful except for listening to my poor husband coughing his head off.....but it gave me an excuse to hide out in my craft room.

I found a card on Pinterest using Lovely as a Tree from SU that was embossed in gold on black and just loved the look....well I decided to do a card in silver and black and used a stamp from Northwood Rubber called Holly Pinecone and Ribbon.....and sentiment is from My Craft Spot Tiny Tags Christmas  which I purchased with my winning gift certificate from a few weeks ago.

Had to use a rick rack type of ribbon as I couldn't find any silver but I guess it you think I should add some color to the pine cone's to make them stand out more or just leave them alone.

Would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

Be back tomorrow with my design team card.

This card rocks my world. I think you should just leave the card alone without any colouring. But go ahead and try one anyways to see how it looks.
