FIVE YEARS! - Color Throwdown #250


Hey, Color Throwdown fans, it's time for a celebration!  A FIFTH ANNIVERSARY celebration, to be exact!  Lori is our hostess today for the big event, and she's got these great Summery colors for you to use in your creations.  We hope everyone will play along because there are some awesome prizes up for grabs this week, as you can see below!  We're incredibly grateful to these companies for their generous donations!  Please be sure to visit their online stores to see all their great products!

Also, as part of our celebration, we've invited back our Color Throwdown Alumni Designers, as well as former Guest Designers to join in the festivities!  Be sure to check out the links below to their blogs, and pay them a visit.  We're so excited to have so many friends back to join us this week.


The challenge details are pretty much the same as always, but you get just a little extra time to play along this week as the deadline to enter is extended to Tuesday, July 16th at midnight Eastern time.  There won't be a Featured Stamper post next Tuesday, but instead it will be on Thursday along with the announcement of prize winners.  Remember, if you don't have these exact colors just use whatever you have that is most similar.  Your entry should be a newly-created, paper-crafted creation, and should consist primarily of these colors.  (Entries that don't follow the rules for this challenge will unfortunately be deleted.)  You may enter as often as you wish, but only one prize will be awarded per person.  Once you have finished your project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. Don't forget to add CTD250 to your key words when you upload to an online gallery.  Any questions, please email colorthrowdown[at]gmail[dot]com and someone will answer you as soon as possible.
