Christmas Card Throwdown: Black and Silver Snowman

I'm playing along with the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown black and silver challenge. 

Christmas Card Throwdown: Black and Silver

The challenge was black and silver and I was struggling with it a bit because I cut everything in basic black and silver and it was quite flat and dull. I changed out a few dies and then I did two different blacks (a pattern and a shiny black) and three different silvers (a glitter, a pearlized and some gems!)  It still about killed me not to give my snowman an orange nose and a bright cheerful scarf - but I ended up liking it as it was.

Thanks to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for a true challenge - but one that guided me in an unexpected direction!
