Black, White & a Pop of Color challenge card

I was blog hopping last night & came across a challenge from Paper Maniacs at They wanted cards made with black, white & a pop of color. Can you believe that I had just finished making one that fit the challenge? Usually I see the challenges & can't find them again. Well, this time I actually wrote it down so I didn't forget to enter! They will have a new challenge on Sunday, so you better be quick if you want to enter

I really love this image from Impression Obsession, but I couldn't decide what to do with it. I remembered that I had bought a ton of these foil squares at a garage sale, so I decided to give them a try. Boy, I'm glad I did! I love how it really sets this scene off!

First I stamped & embossed (yes, embossed, even w/the fine details!) the image on white cardstock. Then I stamped & embossed it again on the foil & cut out just the sky area. I then glued this section carefully on top of the main image. Finally, I stamped & embossed the image again on some more white cardstock & cut out just the sled. For the final touch, I glued the embossed sled image on top of the foil image of the sled. It really popped, but the wreath on the door needed something. I decided to get out some 1/4" red ribbon & made a bow to balance the color. I thought I was done, but now that I look at the picture, I think I may add some snow to the rooftop, or not!
