Color Throwdown #488

Hello there! It's Lynn here as your hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #488!  I chose what I thought was a cheerful spring inspiration photo with some bright colors. I hope you'll like creating with the colors Yellow, Green, Aqua and White for this week's challenge and I hope they inspire you to create something special. We are using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown, you are all set! As always, please feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you need in your design as well!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD488, and please use #ctd488 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, please check them out if you are in doubt! One last detail to remember, 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.

Check out the beautiful creations from the team this week! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!

  1. Fantastic cards by the DT. This is an irresistible color combo for me. Looking forward to playing along.

  2. A yummy colour palette and gorgeous DT cards ... such lovely inspiration, thank you! Anita :)

  3. Wonderful colour choice and beautiful inspiration from the team. Hugs Bev x

  4. I hate yellow roses on cards (not in real life). So I used a pastel color for the rose in her hand. I hope you like this. It really pops the yellow dress more. I think.
