Color Throwdown #457





Hi, everyone!  It’s Lori and it’s my turn as hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are pink, yellow, and gray.  The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals along with the challenge colors. 

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 CTD457 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd457 and #colorthrowdown if you upload to any social media sites (yes, we're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!).  All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.  One last detail to remember, no digital designs.  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed.  Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these fun colors!

Hello Color Throwdown Friends! It is Lisa Henke here as your hostess this week. I am super excited about this week's colors because I am in denial that school is starting. Yep, my kiddos went back to school today and I want to hold on to all the fun in the sun we had this summer. I hope you are inspired by this week's colors- Hot Pink, Lime Green and Yellow. 
If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key wordsCTD456, and please use #ctd456 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, please check them out if you're in doubt. One last detail to remember -  no digital designs--only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.
