I chose a sweet little Christmas  inspiration photo for us this week.  The generic colors are: Pink, Green, Kraft, and White.

Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.


Now here are some wonderful creations from the incredible design team for your inspiration.

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 CTD472, and please use #ctd472 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
