  1. I absolutely love the black and white card. Love the black and white dsp. My favorite color combo.

  2. Great card, simple and clean, but so sophisticated. There is absolutely nothing like classic black and white.

  3. Black and white is one of my favorite combos. Your card says so much very simply. I am always prompted to get busy making a card by your inspiring use of color and design. Thank you Mary for your help in so many ways!

  4. Very sharp, clean and stylish card. Love the spot of red. Perfect added touch. Thanks for sharing with us.
