Its Black Tie Attire at Dynamic Duos this week

Good morning, crafty friends.
Time for another two-colour challenge at Dynamic Duos. The "black and ..." is one of my favorite weeks:
 Black and silver are so suitable as we head into the darkest month of the year. Well, the one with the shortest days, anyway! 
I chose not to go with the dessert option per se, but I did make a winter card with several layers of CTMH grey (Slate, Grey Flannel and Whisper).
The silver comes in with the heat-embossed greeting, and that delicious stitched snowflake die cut from silver linen paper. Serious sparkle! A few stamped snowflakes on the inside, and done.
So are you up to the Black Tie challenge?
Head on over to The Dynamic Duos blog for some beautiful samples from our DT.

Here are the guidelines to join in the fun:
