Color Throwdown #444



Hi, everyone! It's Amy here with a brand new set of colors for this week's challenge. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: green, grey and white, you're in good company! As always, 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 CTD444, and please use #ctd444 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 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, please check them out if you're in doubt. 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. 

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.
