I have some fun news to share!  I’ve been ask to be the guest designer for the Color Throwdown Challenges for September starting with this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge #258!!  Here is my creation.

Check out this week’s beautiful color palette.  Aren’t those greens gorgeous!!

And see those pearls?  They used to be a pretty off-white until they were colored with a yummy chocolate Copic marker.  I love how they turned out!
