Color Throwdown #407




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 lime green, teal, and yellow.  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 CTD407 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd407 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.

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!
