Color Throwdown #332


Hi, everyone! It’s Lori and and it’s my turn as hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge. The colors from this week's inspiration photo are red, dark blue, turquoise, and kraft. The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals.

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 at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD332 if you upload your project to an online gallery. All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started. And, be sure to give a warm welcome to March’s guest designer, Holly Brown, and this week’s Guest Star Stamper, Kevin. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these colors!

Color Throwdown #330




Hello everyone!! Joan here with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Since most of you are under a foot or more of snow, I thought we needed to play with some springy colors this week: light green, green, orange, and white!!! Remember, the colors we use are generic so as long as you use the same values, you will be ok and any neutral will be ok, too!!!

Once you have finished your creation using this week's colors, add a direct link to it using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD330 if you upload your project to an online gallery. All of the challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Check out what the Color Throwdown Designers along with Jen Shults, our February Guest Designer, and Amy White, our Guest Star Stamper, have for you this week.

Hope to see your creation in the CTD gallery!!!
