Color Throwdown #449


Good Morning Color Throwdown Fans!  It's Vickie here with this week's CTD Challenge!  So these colors may remind you of fall (just a little) but, look at that gorgeous poppy- warm weather folks!!  Our colors this week are orange, green, and brown.  The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals.  

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 CTD449 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd449 and #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.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these fun colors!
