Now onto the card! I don't know about you, but sometimes I have trouble NOT adding colour to my cards. I mean, I LOVE a pop of colour on my cards, but the Designer Series Paper `Back in Black` makes creating a black and white colour scheme so easy and so eye catching! Even without adding colour it creates such an elegant look. I hope you like it too!
