  1. The purple and lime looks nice!!
    Currently I'm working on some invitations...color combo to be revealed on my blog soon :)

  2. I've never liked the color green but I am finding myself using a light green as an accent in the new house. Since we have dark wood floors and espresso-color furniture and pale yellow walls, the light green just lively-ups the place.

  3. My friend just went to a wedding where the colors were orange and navy. Sounds like an odd wedding choice, but she said it looked great. The wedding was outdoors on a lake, so the bright colors would have been less eye-popping than inside.

  4. Those flowers look absolutely beautiful. We didn't have a color theme for our wedding. The bridesmaids wore black and the flowers were a mix of bright colors.

  5. I really like these posts. :-)

    What about black or navy and a metallic?

  6. I really like the purple and lime but the one with the sage green is also very nice. I've been on a green kick lately :)
    Right now I'm working on a project in purple and yellow

  7. LOL...I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes pink/purple/blue :) And I'm glad that multiple people like pink and purple together :)
    I love the images you found for the color combos I suggested!

    My latest album was made for a one year old boy with a sports theme...I chose primary red, green and blue for it! Classics are always great!

  8. so fun!
    The sky seems to be the limit on color combinations!
    I just dyed something for someone in soft, palish shades of lavender, green, turquoise, and baby blue. I felt very happy as I worked on this because the colors were so lovely and melded well together.

  9. I'm liking that mint chocolate chip! I was working on some earrings today and came across turquoise and brown and really liked that combination too.

  10. I've been using black (which is really not a color) with a lot of other deep colors, like hunter green and teal. I love Kaili's green/brown/orange together. And the purple and lime together - I usually have a hard time with lime... {:-D

  11. Love the picks you found for mine! Now I'm very hungry after seeing that cookie.

    I'm currently working on my BBA challenge for this month and exploring 50's color combos like teal and yellow.
