Read a Book...Knowledge is Power

The stamps used on this card are from the I {heart} Books set from My Favorite Things stamps. The paper is K and Company, Core'dinations, and DCWV. The image is colored with Copic markers, Creative Inspirations paint, and chalk. MS punch used for the lacey edge, and Nestabilities used for rectangle and scallop rectangle.

The challenges I followed:
Raise the Bar #8: Theme - National Woman's History Month (woman reading)
Our Creative Corner: Sketch
The Play Date Cafe #19 - Deep Yellow, Pale Yellow, and White
Stampin' for the Weekend: Theme - Monochromatic (used yellows)
