Bella Parade '13 : Post # 10

Welcome back to another awesome day!

You were right, people.
Yesterday was Emerald.

And the color of the day is

And here are your clues
1. Starbucks
2. Macchiato, Cortado, Gal√£o,...
3. _ _ _ _ E _ _ O

For the monochromatic scheme, I used it with Eggshell and Hershey

This dark color goes very well with Bright Turquoise for a complementary scheme.

For the creative color scheme, I decided to make it bright & regal.
I used it with Sunflower and Purple

Moving on to my favorite prints to go with this color!
