PTI Blog Hop - Color

This month's PTI blog hop focuses on color combinations, and the colors I chose were:

Hawaiian Shores, Terracotta Tile, and Orange Zest.

Now, I went a little crazy and made four cards with this combo, I just couldn't stop! 
The last two add some other fun colors to the mix.
First up:
Detail shot: I used one of the flower centers to create a stamped scallop border:

Up second: (layout inspired by KWerner)


Up third: 
color progression, throw in some neutrals (kraft and smoky shadow)
Detail shot: canvas-textured umbrella

and lastly, take out the neutrals, add a shade (aqua mist) and a contrast (simply chartreuse):
(layout inspired by Lauren Meader)
Thanks for stopping by, I can't wait to hop around and get some fab new color combos to try!  You can find the links to participants at Nichole's blog.

I adore all of your cards, Becky! Orange & blue together (in any shades thereof) are so delicious! I could write a book here about everything I like, but to save your eyes, I'll just mention the ribbon flower centers, texture on the umbrella, and the graphic use of the flower from All About You--superb!
