Color Throwdown #316



Hi everyone!! It's Monika here today, and it is my turn to host this week's challenge. I love the rich colors of Fall, and when I saw this picture, I just had to use it. The butterflies were just perfect, since I often use those on my cards.

As always, 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 CTD316 if you upload your project to an online gallery.


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