Color Throwdown #352


Hello Throwdown fans!  It's my turn to host the challenge this week, and I've got something different for you to try... I hope you'll like it!  On the front desk of the office where I work, there's a sign in sheet for clients and I always keep a small bucket of pens beside the clipboard.  I LOVE to look at the little buckets in the $1 Spot at Target, and found this one a few weeks back.  The more I looked at it sitting on my desk, the more I thought about what a great Throwdown challenge those colors would make!

The colors this week are a lime-y green, aqua green, light gray and dark gray!  Feel free to mix in neutrals as well, but try to make your creation only consist of these colors. 

Once your card or project is ready, simply add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post.  Be sure to use the keyword CTD352 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd352 and/or #colorthrowdown.  Challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar if you have any questions.

Check out what the team has created with these colors!

Entry # 8. Bobbi - Gorgeous butterfly. I love the pretty hues of pink and purple with the black background:


Entry # 23. Kimberly Wiener - Another gorgeous butterfly card. The white embossing looks wonderful with the colorful background:


 
Entry # 29. Mackie - Fantastic sponging on the balloons. I also love the delicate black strings and the greeting as one of the strings.
