Color Throwdown #442

Hello, everyone!  It's Lynn here and I'm interrupting Barbara's regularly scheduled post below because, what Barbara doesn't know is that for this week's challenge we are honoring her as our Color Throwdown Team Leader.  What most people who follow our weekly challenge don't know is, that while some of us on the design team do small things to keep the Color Throwdown running, Barbara dedicates her time and does most of the work.  She keeps us on track and makes this weekly color challenge site what it is.  Without Barbara there wouldn't be a Color Throwdown Challenge along with all of the inspiration and fun we try to share each week.  So as a thank you, all of the CTD design team members (including an alumni member) have dedicated their cards to Barbara this week.
Thank you, Bar!

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: Kraft, yellow, gray, and aqua, 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 CTD432, and please use #ctd432 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 designs--only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.
For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.
