Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows

The Saturated Canary challenge this week is Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows, and I’ve interpreted it by going with pink and brown.  Not quite a colour combo I would choose for a Christmas card but I really love it!  Thanks for coming up with such an awesome challenge Pops.

  1. Not a combination I would have chosen either, but I must agree it looks fabulous, and I´m definitely giving it a try sometime soon too, that´s for sure.
    Have a great day.
