Week 129 - Black and White plus One

Good Morning everyone and welcome to a fresh challenge at Allsorts hosted by me (Nicola). Firstly I would just like to thank everyone who played along with Jill's fantastic 'Anything but Square' theme last week. I can tell you all loved it as we had so many beautiful entries making Jill's Top 5 a tough decision!
This week I would love to see you create something using just

Black, White and One other colour.

As you can see some of us have used skin/hair tones too which is fine, just as long as everything else follows the set colours leaving you to choose your favourite colour to compliment the black and white.

Our fantastic sponsor this week is
