Black and white Christmas and Rudolph Day

The current challenge over at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge is 'Black and white and one other colour if you wish'. This is my entry:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- black and then white card layered

- three pre-cut black, white and silver baubles by Kan Ban, from when I have no idea

- black and silver sentiment - again pre-cut

- one cheeky red gem on the sentiment (to hide the hole that you could thread ribbon through to use it as a tag)

I pondered over the red gem as that might make four colours - if silver is counted as a colour!?! But it's only small and I liked the little bit of red :)

It's another one for the box as well as my first entry for Sarn's Rudolph Day Challenge this month. The prize is a fabby Penny Black stamp (which sadly I already have but that reduces the odds for everyone else). Slightly skewed logic but I know what I mean at least :) Why not join in the fun?
