  17. Hi Lilliam, we love your card; however we are questioning the colors that you used because you have named poppy and violet, and we see both in the dots...was this the two colors you used to get sapphire? Kinda like remember "is the dress Black and Blue, or White and Gold". Just wanted to clarify with you the colors because we are an "All and Only" colors used in our grid and don't want to disqualify an entry because of photography. Your card is lovely. Please do not be offended, but we want to give your card a fair chance in our voting, and want you to come back for future challenges understanding we are an "All and Only" color challenge. Please notify me.

    Thanks so much for joining us at Winter Wonderland. Hope to see you again soon.
