Dynamic Duos #33

It's Black Tie week at Dynamic Duos. This week we are pairing up black with gold and a dessert option of a music theme. This will  be our last challenge of the year. We are taking a little break for Christmas and New Years. We'll be back on January 5th and we'll be starting off the year with some great colors.

Here is my card for this week:

I was a little intimidated by these colors when I first saw them. Not the black...but the gold. I never use gold..what the heck am I going to do with gold? So, I started to dig and score!!! I found some gold embossing powder..whohoo. The stuff is so old, I'm surprised it still worked..haha. I stamped the large bell directly on the card and die cut the small bell and bow. I attached the bell with my dots and the bow with foam tape. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

Here are this week's colors:
As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by. I know this time of year we all get really busy, but I hope you can find the time to join us this week.

I hope all of you have a blessed Christmas and a safe and happy New Year!
