Knowledge Is Power - CTD # 157

Hi, all, I’m back again with this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! this week I’m the host and here are the colors I chose:

For my card, I chose to use MFT’s I {heart} Books set. I thought it went well with Basic Grey’s Oxford paper, which is what I’m using. The little sweetie is colored with Copic markers and I added some clear Spica glitter pen to her glasses lenses.

Here's the inside with another sentiment and image from the set.


Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD157 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week! We're still on our Summer schedule, but next week the whole design team should be back in the swing of things!
