Merry Monday Challenge 196!

Sue wants us to use the color combo of black, white and gray or silver on our cards this week at Merry Monday. I used all 4 colors for today's card:

The Black Glimmer Paper and the Silver Glimmer Paper really work well for this card don't they? And the white Christmas flowers really pop against the background layers:

I added Metal Rimmed Pearls for the center of each flower and used an embossing folders from my stash for the background. 

I have another card to show you also. When I work on my Merry Monday assignments, I usually create a whole month in one sitting and for some reason, I did not think I had completed this challenge and made another card using the same colors, this was actually the first card I had created:

I love the way the white trees really show up with the black trees in the background. I added just a hint of sponging at the top by keeping it subtle:

I hope you enjoyed both of my cards today and I hope to see a project from you in our Merry Monday gallery!

Before I go I would like to ask you for your help. I joined in on a little contest with this card entry:

It's an International Blog Highlight and the top 5 winners get to participate in a future International Blog Hop. I would love it if you voted for my card by going to Kylie's blog link listed below and clicked on the little heart in the top right-hand corner of my entry. I am entry #3 and thanks in advance:

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
