Ok I just received a plate which will be used for my cousin's baby shower. The theme is two peas in a pod. I thought at first that the colors would be more juniper or sage, but looking at the plate it appears leaf/lime green. Would you guys look at this link and help me figure out what colors I should use? I'm pulling in the design (polka dots) and making a topper out of fondant.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like Forest Green and maybe mint green? Definitely not lime. That would be brighter and this one has a muted tone to it.. HTH icon_smile.gif

Here are some cookies I did for that theme as well.

I belive I used "leaf green" for the dk. green and "avocado" for the light green (americolor gels)

Those are beautiful! Thanks for sharing! DF said lime, but I think that's too neon/bright. I was wondering what the avocado color looked like. I have to place an SPS order soon so I will order a bottle of that.

Thanks so much for your help!

those cookies are avocado with a light hand, if you use a bit of a heavier hand you get THIS color

Wow that's pretty! It looks completely different than the swatch on the website. I'm going to stop into the cake decorating store and see if they carry that color. Thanks again!

I was also going to say avocado.

avocado is a weird color, it comes out completely different when you add a "tiny bit" than it does if you add a lot!!
