Christmas Cupcake

Well, hello, everyone!  It's Friday again and that means time for another Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge.  This week we have another easy one for you: Your favorite color combo.  Our sponsor is Meljen's Designs and the prize will be some of their adorable images.
  Now, I said that this challenge was an easy one, but it didn't turn out so for me. : )  My favorite color is blue, so I thought to use that at first.  But then I saw some of the other DT members had used it, so I wanted to do something a bit different.  My favorite card combo is pink and green.  But that isn't really Christmas-y (though I have used it once or twice).  Then, I thought about how elegant the black and white combo is with a pop of red and decided to go with that.  Phew!  So, after all that, here is the card:
Now, hop on over to the CSAYL blog to see the other projects and the full details.  Hopefully, you will have an easier time choosing your favorite color combo.
