Color Throwdown 501- birthday sheep

Hello everyone! Amy Rysavy here as your host for week's Color Throwdown challenge! I still find myself obsessed with the color combo of grey and yellow together so when I saw this room picture I HAD to use it for inspiration this week! The colours for this week are to use grey, yellow, kraft, and white. Remember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in neutrals (white/black/etc) to make your creation pop!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD501, and please use #CTD501 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

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.

Here's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the CTD team to get y'all started!

I shopped my stash today and boy am I so glad I did. I discovered something exciting with this sweet little sheep from Lil' Inker Designs. The stamp set is called Farm Love and I colored up the sheep and the little heart bouquet with Copics. I then used the Farm Love Dies to cut them out. When I did this I discovered that the sheep had extra cut lines around his arms so he can hold all the things! yay! I know I should have already been aware of this, but I never used this image during the release. So it was a happy discovery! 

I used one of my favorite cover plates for the background in Sand card stock. It's called Quilted Stitched Harlequin. I just love it in kraft. The sentiment is from Hand Drawn Happiness (isn't is soooo pretty??!!) and I mounted it all on a Dual Stitched Circle die

Check out the beautiful creations from the team this week! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!!
