Color Throwdown #309

Good Morning!! Vickie here bringing you the colors for this week's Color Throwdown challenge!!

I picked this gorgeous quilt for inspiration as I loved this combination of colors!! Yep, I want it!!

NOTE: Did you notice that we're no longer including color names on the color swatch? Although we have traditionally used Stampin' Up! colors, we recognize that times have changed and there are many companies from which you can buy supplies. We are going with generic colors to hopefully avoid stifling your creativity by using any industry names. As a result, we decided to provide you with the colors "pulled" from the inspiration piece rather than actual color names. Is that confusing... I hope not!! For example, with this challenge there is blue, light blue, a citrus-y green, and gray. As long as you use these as your main colors... you're good!!

Another reminder... neutrals are free!! Neutrals include black, white, gray, kraft etc. I did name gray, a neutral, as part of this challenge due to the predominance of the color in the inspiration photo, so in this case gray is a part of the challenge palette.

Lastly, remember if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD309. Also, when linking up your card using the Inlinkz 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. For more inspiration check out the design team members' creations below. 

Get forth and get inky!! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!!

Wonderful inspiration photo and designs by the DT. Colour combinations are still very hard for me, but maybe I should just dive in and give it a go.
