Black and silver

I've never actually seen a mostly black Christmas card before, but I think this one is kind of elegant, at least in person.
The ornament is from Kaiser Craft, silver embossed on black snippets. It's hard to tell from the photo, but there is a gem in the center of each ornament.  They are mounted on silver, and the sentiment (from Stampin Up) is silver-embossed on part of a die-cut piece.
The sketch is the current one for Sketch Saturday.
What do you think -- is there too much black or does it work?

This card is for these challenges:
Sketch Saturday #362
Rudolph Days May -- Christmas card
CHNC Christmas #230-- die-cut or punched element
CHNC Christmas Extra -- anything Cristmas
CRAFT Challenge -- Christmas without red or green
