Color Throwdown #289

Hi everyone!! It's Monika here today, and it is my turn to host this week's challenge. I love butterflies, and when I saw this picture, I just had to use it.

Remember if you don't have the exact colors, it’s OK to substitute whatever is close to this week’s colors.  Just be sure that your creation primarily uses only the specified challenge colors.  (All challenge rules can be reviewed in the right side bar.) Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool we’ve provided below.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD289 if you upload your project to an online gallery.

Thanks for playing along with us this week!!!!

Color Throwdown #288


Hi, everyone! It’s Melody and and it’s my turn as hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge #288. I chose a pretty backyard photo for us to use for inspiration this week.

As always, if you don’t have the exact colors, it’s no problem. Substitute with what you have that’s close to this week’s colors. Just be sure that your creation primarily uses only the specified challenge colors.  (All challenge rules can be reviewed in the left sidebar.) Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool we’ve provided below. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD288 if you upload your project to an online gallery.




Here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started. We’re also joined by April’s guest designer, Jeanne Jachna.
