Color Throwdown #374

Hello, Color Throwdown friends, and happy new year to you all!  It’s Broni here as your hostess for the very first challenge of 2016.

First, how do you like the fresh and fabulous updated blog design?  That is brought to you by our super-talented design guru, Barbara!  We’re all in love with it!

Next we have a few changes in our design team.  SADLY, we’re saying goodbye to one of our founding members, Tammy.  I still can’t believe she’s leaving us, but she has new and happy plans for her future so we’re all happy for her too!  We’ve invited a former member to rejoin us and thankfully she said yes!  I know you’ll be thrilled to see Lynn Put back!!  We’re also welcoming a brand new member to our family – Lisa Henke!  We’re so glad she’s coming on board!

One more thing!  We're welcoming a fabulous Guest Designer his sure to say hello and leave some love for the extremely talented Amy Rysavy!! 

Now on to this week’s challenge!  I have to confess I was a little ready to shed the holiday colors, so I chose something completely different.  The generic colors are Aqua, Orange and Light Gray.  Feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well.  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD374, and please use #ctd374 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.  Also when playing along please be sure to use a direct link to your creation/blog post and not a generic link to your blog.  All of the rules are in the right sidebar if you have any questions.

I can’t wait to see what you create!  Now take a moment to check out the inspiration from our fabulous design team below.

OMG, I love the new design! Thanks for this palette: I need to make a few sympathy cards (my least fave type... prob. most people's least fave...), but this palette will make the process at least pleasant to look at, even if the task is sucky...
