Color Throwdown #652

 


Hi, everyone, it's time for a new challenge! Barbara here with your colors for this week. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: aqua, blue, green, and Kraft you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. 

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD652, and please use #ctd652 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. Importantly, though, no digital designsonly digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.
