Color Throwdown #527

Hi, everyone!  It’s Lori and it’s my turn as hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are navy blue, gray, and green.  The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals along with the challenge colors. 

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD527 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd527and #colorthrowdown if you upload to any social media sites (yes, we're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!).  All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.  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.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started.  The CTD team is looking forward to seeing what you create with these fun colors!
