Macro makes decision based on cell color

I have written a macro that goes down a column reading each cell and carrying out a specific action. Is there a way that I can make the macro sensitive to the color of the cell so that if it is one color it carries out one function and if it is another color, it carries out a different function?

Thanks,

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Well, having written some code I may as well post it :)

Code:
Sub test()
Dim i As Byte
For i = 1 To 10
    Select Case Range("A" & i).Interior.ColorIndex
        Case 3
            MsgBox "Cell A" & i & " is red"
        Case 4
            MsgBox "Cell A" & i & " is green"
        Case 5
            MsgBox "Cell A" & i & " is blue"
    End Select
Next i
End Sub
