I guess I'm a traditionalist with colors...I love red, green and black. Sometimes the black is a surprise, but it always looks classy. :)

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I love hot pink black and white - unusual but striking especially with lots of bling


Darla said...

I tend to stick to traditional red, green and gold or blue silver and white... although this year I'm either doing all grey and ivory OR black/brown and white/ivory. :)
Thanks so much for the chance.

Hi Ruth I love the spiral butterfly card and such lovely colour combination. Clever! This year I plan to make lots of black and white cards. They allow for lots of "snow" and glitter.
