Color Throwdown #211

Happy fall, y'all!  It's Wanda here as your hostess this week and yes...I've got a rather different color combo for you, but hopefully you'll find it fun to try something new!  I was fascinated by this photo of an egret flying into a sunset and the resulting warm, gradient colors captured by the photographer!

As always, if you don’t have the exact colors, it’s no problem. Substitute with what you have that’s close to this week’s colors. Once you’ve finished your card or project, add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool we’ve provided below. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD211 if you upload your project to an online gallery.  You can find all the "official" rules in the sidebar on the right.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented design team to get you started. We've loved having the talented Sherry Cheever as our guest designer this month...thanks for your wonderful inspiration!

Wanda, this is an amazing color combo!!
Even though oranges aren't my thing, the DT samples are making it easy for me to picture some fab projects in these colors.

Thank you for the fun challenge, wasn't sure if I was going to pull off the Summer Star Fruit, but I was able to sneak just a little in there :)
