Color Throwdown #55


Welcome to Week #55 of The Color Throwdown! I'm your host this week, and decided on this bright color combo! I was inspired by a card I saw on someone's blog, but for the life of me don't remember where to give credit, but I thought the bright pink and sunny yellow were complimented beautifully with black, white and kraft, so that's your challenge for today!

We would love to see your creations too, and remember, if you don't have the exact colors, feel free to substitue something similar. The keyword this week is CTD55 - makes sure you use it when you upload to any public gallery so that we can see how you've interpreted the colors this week! Use Mr. Linky below to link us directly to your post - not just your blog - so that you can be in the running for next week's Featured Stamper. Who knows, you may be chosen as our October Guest Designer! (You can participate in our challenges at any time, but to be considered for the blog candy and/or Featured Stamper your entry must be linked with Mr. Linky by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, August 16th.)

Hi,


I am French and I wanted to know how to participate?
I have not found anywhere the conditions for participation in the challenge.
Can you help me?

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I am very inspired by this challenge that you are proposing, and I would like to participate.

Thanks for your reply.

Best regards from France.
