AAA Cards Challenge #178 Sketch, with video

This fortnight the AAA Cards Challenge is a sketch and the optional twist is to use primary colours.
Together those two threw me, I had to think real hard, then I discarded the  optional twist and went for black and silver. I feel a very masculine and elegant card.

Our sponsor is Funky Fossil Designs and you could win a GBP15  store credit.

For my card I followed the sketch first by adding a bit of black/silver  Christmas Washi tape. Ilike to fold the edges over, or you get those peeled up corners, so even if you see it on the back or inside, I still prefer it.

For the bits across the washi I thought I'd use a sentiment banner. I embossed  My Favorite Things Bitty Holiday Wishes with Papermania Superfine Silver. To cut it out I've used a Carlijn Design banner set.  As always use what you have.

I embossed some black card with Wow Midas Touch and cut out  one of the Splendid Stags from Newton's Nook. adhered it with liquid glue to get all the  antlers coated.
