Color Throwdown #320




Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara here with your colors for this week. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US so before I go any further, the CTD team wants to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you'll find some time for yourself to create during this very busy weekend.

Since Thanksgiving in the US is the unofficial start of the holiday season, I thought I'd give you some Christmas colors to work with. You don't have to use them for a Christmas card unless you want to, but hopefully they will get you in the spirit of the season if you're not already :)

Remember, we're using generic colors now, so as long as you use the color values shown: Kraft, silver (feel free to substitute light gray if you don't have any silver), aqua, and red, you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! Kraft and silver/gray are neutrals and are part of the palette, but feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD320. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.


Let's have fun with this!
