Happy Grad!

Hi everyone! Well, today is bittersweet for me. It is my very last week as Guest Designer for Color Throwdown. It has been nothing short of a joy to work with the design team. They've been so nice to me and I have truly enjoyed being a part of the team. I totally can see how much work goes into hosting a challenge like this and they have my respect for that! Thank you guys for having me along for the ride!! I can stay if you need me to! LOL  ;)

Ok, so here are the colors for this week brought to use by Barbara!

I love these colors especially cream with red and black. White, not so much. Cream just is so much richer than white and looks better with the other two colors to me. So, I thought I would do a graduation card because it is just about that time of year! 

Here is my card:

I used the book print dsp from SU and thought it was a good idea since you do tend to read a lot in college..high school, too! It's sort of like you're tearing your book to shreds never to look at one again. Of course, we all know (well all of us who love reading) that's not how it goes. I guess it's better reading when you want to read than when you have

I hope you will stop by the other DT members blogs and see what they've created with this color combo. And then stop by the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week!  Thank you for stopping by!!

Love those scallops on a grad card, Keva. You reminded me, I have about 6 graduation cards to make, better get going on it. Thanks for the inspiration.
