Color Challenge: Tones of Spring

Our gorgeous new color challenge palette has me feeling a bit nostalgic!


Design-Seeds: Tones of Spring

My daughter chose this palette for her wedding last May. The classic navy was very elegant, and the green brought a fresh, spring look to the event. (You can guess which folder of photos I went to on my computer to find one for this challenge!)

Debi found these colors well suited to a page featuring her daughter’s soccer teammates. The green in the palette helped her deal with one girl’s shirt that ‘stood out’ a little bit in the photo!

Our palette had Esther feeling a bit nostalgic, too. She found a totally sweet photo of her DD from years back that worked perfectly here.
