Color Throwdown #453


Hello, everyone!  Broni here and I’m excited that it’s my turn to host the Color Throwdown this week.

With summer in full swing, I'm sure a lot of the country is in full heat & humidity mode, so I thought these refreshing beverages might be a suitable inspiration for us.

The generic colors are Raspberry Pink, Yellow, and Green.  For your paper-crafted creation, please use just these 3 colors with any neutrals you'd like to add.

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD453, and please use #ctd453 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.  When linking your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please use a specific link to your individual blog post and not just a generic link to your blog.  Also, please be sure to check out all the "rules" in the right sidebar.  We do not accept totally digital creations, only digital images printed, colored, and added to your paper-crafted project will be allowed.

We're looking forward to seeing your creations this week!  Check out what the amazing designers have uploaded for your inspiration.
