    Whoo hoo! It's DSD and I get to host my favorite challenge of all... the color palette contest for an upcoming BYOC!

    Isn't this mood board by Salted Ink Digital Design fun?!! It's something I would consider submitting if I was trying to help select BYOC colors.

    Your job with this challenge is to think like a designer... you'll be selecting colors for our March 2017 BYOC, so think spring - whether that is pastels to you or fresh brights.

    Details:
    • Again, this will be for the March 2017 BYOC
    • Post a mood board or color palette in this thread
    • You can submit up to three
    • Challenge closes at 8am EDT on Tuesday, Oct 4
    • PRIZE: the entry with the winning palette will receive the entire March 2017 BYOC when it is released!!!
    • The most recent winner is not eligible
    • Please link us up to the source for your palette or to the photos you used to make your own. Credit of sources is due.
    • Please do not use patterns or images from within the scrapbooking industry - neither paper nor digi.

    The TLP Designers and Pollys will be voting for their favorite color themes of those submitted. Since the voting is usually very close, it takes about a week to narrow the submissions down to the top three. A second vote is done to get from the final three to the winning BYOC palette! I will announce the winner and winning palette as soon as possible, which usually takes about two weeks.

    Helpful hints:

    1) It really helps to have a palette with a larger number of colors or themed images, so keep that in mind when putting together your palette.

    2) If you need a little help getting your creative juices flowing, TLP has a board dedicated to "Inspiration :: Mood Boards & Color Palettes" which is chock full of ideas to spark your creativity!

    3) Another place to see what we mean about mood boards is the Salted Ink website - on the portfolio page there are 20+ concept ideas with colors/mood/branding. There are many, many websites to find palettes.

    4) Advertising or magazines are great inspiration too!

    5) Consider doing something unique with your ideas! Make the palette yourself... search Pinterest or online sources for images that demonstrate your color and mood vision.

    I can't wait to see what you all submit, it's always so inspirational and soooo hard to pick my favorites, much less the winning palette!

    ------------------edited to add winner!!!

    Congrats to Christa @cfile
    Her entry won for the March 2017 BYOC color scheme!
    She wins the entire BYOC collection :) and may I add that we all win by having the BYOC created with this gorgeous palette. Thanks to all for playing!! It was a difficult decision and very close in the final round of judging.

    Hey everyone - I see the credits for some of those who've posted, but don't for others. So if you did not already credit your sources, please link us up to where you found your board or to the photo sources if you made a board. Thank you! :)

    this is from Cocolia Creative Studio (cocolia.cat)

    I just love this and with a daughter who plays sports, it would be fun to see some more girly colors with some sporty elements
