Color Throwdown #81

Happy Wednesday everyone :O) Welcome back to the CTD and our 81st challenge!!! Hope you're ready to throwdown a fresh palette of color! My color choice today was inspired by some beautiful cards in the newest SU! Wishlist. LOVE this combo!!

This week also marks our last week with sweet, Debi Southard, our distinguished February Guest Designer!  Wasn't she a fabulous addition to the team?  Love her work :]  So, thank you Deb, you have been wonderful!!!  We truly enjoyed having you with us this month

The rules are simple...you don't have to match the colors exactly, just use the closest colors you have. Use keyword CTD81 in any online galleries, add the direct link to your project using InLinkz below, and be sure to credit the Color Throwdown Challenge as your color inspiration. The complete rules are listed in the sidebar if you're looking for more detailed guidelines :]

Thank you for your continued loyalty to the CTD...and if you're a newbie, WELCOME to the greatest color challenge in the blogosphere

Color Throwdown #80




Happy Wednesday! Welcome to the 80th challenge here at the Color Throwdown! This week I chose colors from some gorgeous paper called Vintage Valentine from Fancy Pants. I've used it on my sample below: burgundy, rusty brown, and soft green. I kept them all soft and muted. The team has some gorgeous samples to share and we'd love for you to join us. Please use Inlinkz below to link your card or project directly from your blog or public gallery using CTD80 keyword. I hope you enjoy using these colors!

We will be using a new link system called Inlinkz. It's works the same as Mr. Linky. Just add your entry below using your name, url to your project, and your email address. Please let us know if you have any problems! With Mr. Linky being so tempermental we thought we'd give this new one a try! Thanks and have a great day!
