In Color Comparison

After seeing the new IN COLORS yesterday I thought you might like to see how the five colors compare with colors in the traditional collection of Stampin' Up!.  I think it helps to compare so I have put the new color with ones you are familiar with.  Questions?  Suggestions?

My IN COLOR MONTHLY SHARE CLUB has already started and, if you love these colors, the club is the way to get the supplies you need to use these colors for the next two years ~ and, after, of course!  If you are interested you can download my flyer for all the details!!
