Black & White + 1 other colour

I am in Christmas card making mode, and decided to go with simplicity for a batch I have made today.  So it is black and white, and gold.  Two slightly different versions, but using the same stamp.  I have embossed the Penny Black Fantasy Tree on to black card, and then double mounted - first gold card and then black again.  However, the last black layer is a brocade embossed card so it gives a little bit of a shine.  The whole thing is mounted on to white card that has a gold sheen.  So a batch of eight very quickly completed.  Apologies the photos are poo.

I am entering this into the following challenge:

Craft Catz - Colour challenge - Black and white plus one other colour
Craft your Passion - glitz and glitter - well I have glitz in the form of gold embossing
