Color ThrownDown Challenge # 20

Its Wednesday already! This week's color challenge was truly a challenge!! These colors remind me of the gallon, pint, ounce color tip. Use a gallon of one color, a pint of one or two, and an ounce of the last color. When you have colors this strong, you need to pick one as an accent. Not to mention it gives your project just a little extra punch. Sometimes I get way too matchy-matchy with my cards. This forced me to use colors that I wouldn't and you know what? I LOVE IT!

Now, I know my colors aren't quite the ones listed, but they are the basic idea. I found these colors in the Sugared paper pack from Basic Grey.

I would love to see your take on the challenge! Make a card and label it CTD20 and post it in your favorite gallery and in our Color ThrowDown Challenge blog. Make sure and check out the cards from the other team members, too!! :)
