Color Throwdown #43

Hi everybody! Broni here! It’s my week to host the Color Throwdown challenge and I've chosen a color combo that I believe is classic and should be very easy to work with!





I hope you’ll play along with us! It’s simple. Use these colors (or whatever you have that is close) to create a card or project. Upload it to your blog and/or online gallery (please use keyword CTD43), then enter the DIRECT LINK TO YOUR CARD into the Mister Linky section of today’s post.


Don't forget, we've just changed things up. (See this post.) You could be our next Featured Stamper with a chance at being our Guest Designer for the entire month of July!

No pressure! Just have fun creating!!

These colours worked out great! I'm so happy I came across your challenge this week because I don't usually work with these colours. I had so much fun putting the card together. Thanks for hosting and picking such a neat colour combo. And thanks for stopping by my blog, too!

Sorry about the issues with Mr. Linky. Hopefully it will get fixed as a lot of sites use it. Here is my creation.
