Color Throwdown #18

Welcome to week #18 of the Color Throwdown! This week is special and exciting for us as we get to introduce a new member of our team! Please help us make welcome Kimberly Crawford! I have personally been a big fan of Kim's work for awhile now, and when we decided to add another member to our team, she was the unanimous choice! We hope that you'll join in the Throwdown this week, and help us welcome Kim! Remember to leave us a comment here with a link to your card so we can check it out! If you upload your card to any online galleries, please be sure to use the keywords CTD18!

To celebrate Kim's first week with us, we will be giving away a 6x6 pad of the Eva paper from Basic Grey, since it was what inspired her color choices today! So make a card or other project using these colors, and leave a comment here to be eligible to win! The deadline to enter in Monday, November 10th by 9:00 a.m. eastern time. We will draw one winner on Monday!



*EDITED TO ADD - I contacted Michelle this morning from Stampers' Dream, and in honor of Kim being a new member of her design team, and a new member of our team here, she has graciously offered to donate the 6x6 Basic Grey Eva paper pad! Woohoo! Thanks Michelle! We appreciate that so much!
