Color Throwdown 478-You're So Cool

Hello there! It's Lynn is our hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #478!  She chose a cozy colorful inspiration photo with some bright colors to cheer up anyone who has the winter doldrums. I hope you'll like creating with the colors Hot PinkLime GreenYellow and Pale Blue for this week's challenge and I hope they inspire you to create something special. We are using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown, you are all set! As always, please feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you need in your design as well!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD478, and please use #ctd478 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 are 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.

I was excited that these colors  for this week fit right in with the playful papers from Cheerful & Kind by Reverse Confetti. I cut a strip of the striped pattern and adhered it to the Cloud White panel. I back that all in Baby Blue  card stock. 

I cut the Topped Off Tags Confetti Cuts in Baby Blue card stock and layered on some dots with the Dots Tag Layer. I inked up the hat from Happy Winter in Parakeet Tangerine inks. I used the Happy Winter Confetti Cuts to cut out the winter hat.  I added a twine bow and tucked in some glittery Let It Snow Confetti Cuts flakes.  I am turning this into a birthday card with a "happy birthday" greeting on the inside. 

Check out this gorgeous inspiration from the team:
