Color Throwdown Sketchbook Saturday

I felt like doing a bit of layering, so I used the Color Throwdown #218 combo along with the Sketchbook Saturday #83 sketch to create this card:

I struggled with the colors for a while, but eventually settled on something that felt at least decent.  The designer papers are from a MME Lost & Found pad I picked up at Hobby Lobby a month or so ago.

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
