Color Throwdown Challenge #772

 Hello everyone! Kelly Schirmer here as your host for this week's Color Throwdown challenge! 

The colors for this week:  blue, aqua, and gold!  Reminds me of snow and ice, nighttime city sidewalks, elegant holiday parties, and Hanukkah! 

Remember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in neutrals (white/black/etc) to your creation. 

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD772, and please use #CTD772 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

One last detail to remember, no digital designs, please!  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed.  Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

We can’t wait to see what you make!  Next Tuesday we’ll reveal a randomly-selected guest designer from all of the entries, and showcase some cards or projects that captured our attention. For now, here is some fabulous inspiration from the CTD team…
