  2. Beautiful image and those cards are so gorgeous. Hopefully this weekend my colour palette will be green and red as I get Christmasy!

  3. Green, definitely green. The green of a suffal coat or cut grass or of fresh salad or the Christmas tree I'm waiting to get.

  17. I love pastels as well.The cards are gorgeous.Getting back to the pastels,I seem to like them year round.Except for the winter season now I do like ones with a touch of glitter or bling as they say.Sometimes a soft green with glitter brings out blue eyes they say.Mine are blue.
