Color Inspiration

This week my color inspiration came from fresh flowers purchased from the grocery store.  Deep purple and lime inspiring!

I decided to do a color exercise and see how close I could match the flower.  Purple and white gingham represents the outer petals, while dark purple embroidery floss matches the deeper tones.  Bright lime green floss for the flower center adds a contrast and keeps the purples from being boring.  Can you envision a smocked dress using these colors?  I can!
