Color Throwdown #358

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It's Jodi here with you today, and it's my turn to host this week's challenge!

I LOVE the fresh color combo of this week's inspiration picture!  There is something so crisp about the color combination of navy, yellow and white!

The colors are generic, and you can use any hue of the chosen combo of navy, yellow and white, and of course, you can add any neutral of your choice!  If you post in an online gallery, please use the keyword CTD358, and please be sure to use #ctd358 and #colorthrowdown if you're posting on social media!

Check out what the team has created with this color combo!  We can't wait to see what you create!
