Color Throwdown 452

Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge with the Color Throwdown team! Barbara is here with our colors for this week. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: green, yellow, red, and aqua, you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, 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 CTD452, and please use #ctd452 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, so check 'em out to be sure. Importantly, though, 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.

I was so excited to have THE PERFECT image to use this week It's from the Lil' Inker Designs Rustic Spring stamp set. I used my copics to color up the sweet row of houses and then used the coordinating Rustic Spring Dies to cut it out. I made the card into a 4.25 square and added a fun stitched detail with the Silly Stitched Square dies and then cut out a window with the Stitched mats-Circles die. 

Behind the window I wanted a sunshiney, happy feel so I sponged on some Scattered Straw Distress ink and then gave it a splattering of water to activate the ink. I tied on some twine to finish it off. The sentiment is stamped from the Jar of Flowers set. I just love the font and thought this makes for a perfect moving card.
