WELCOME BACK, MERRY MONDAY!!!!!

Hello everyone: After taking the Summer off, the talented ladies at Merry Monday are back in business and I couldn't be happier, the challenge this time is to use the colors Black, White and Gold, which make very elegant Christmas cards. I couldn't make up my mind about what color to use as a background so, I made two cards, maybe you could tell me which one you like the best. I used the beautiful Botanical Blooms die set from Stampin' Up! on both cards.


This is the finished inside of this card.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called POINSETTIA and the little Poinsettia in the corner from another Power Poppy set called MERRY LITTLES 
**************************************************************
Here is the picture of my second card, I had trouble photographing the gold flowers so I hope you can see them ok.

The sentiment is from my old stash of Christmas stamps, I heat embossed it in gold.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of this card.

For this card I used one of the stamps on the brand new SU set called FATHER CHRISTMAS, I love this vintage Christmas images. The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Christmas Candles".
So, which one you like the best? 
Here is the photo that inspired my card.
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, use Black, White and Gold.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Both cards are just lovely Maria, but I especially like the black background one...those gold flowers just really pop off the darker color! Thanks so much for sharing with us this week at Merry Mondays! :0)

I love both cards but the black background is my favorite. Of course, I would be thrilled to receive either and I feel most people would. Both are great takes on the challenge. I love those colors together. Have a great Saturday.

Thank you HJ, I didn't think the card with the black background was going to look nice, after all, it's a Christmas card but it does, the cold accents really make it look elegant.
