I'm making a couple of memory boards for my craft room.  I have one finished.

And here it is again showing the wall color...sorry pic is a bit blurry but you get the idea.

I love this Heather Ross Mendocino fabric.  I've been lusting after it for ages and finally got some from another craftster in the OWS swap!  This is what I decided to use it for.  I'm having a really hard time deciding how to do the second one.  I want it to match the one I already have done but I don't want it to be exactly the same. The furniture in the room is white and brown.  And the walls are green.  So I wanted to tie those colors together and use orange as an accent color to add a bit of splash to the room.   Here are some ideas I've come up with.  Which do you like the best?

1) small seahorse material with brown ribbon and orange buttons...or I might try and find some green buttons.

2) small seahorse material with green ribbon and brown buttons.

3) Large seahorse/octopus material with brown ribbon.  (I didn't put out buttons but either orange or green)

4) Large seahorse/octopus material with green ribbon and brown buttons. I didn't take a pic of this but it's be exactly like the one I already did...maybe to much the same

5)Green material with brown ribbon (I didn't put out buttons but either orange or green).

5)Green material with orange ribbon.  I think I'd use brown buttons.

I think the orange fabrics are really pretty and striking against your wall colour, so I'd go with those. I like either ribbon, and the orange buttons for sure. All your options are very pretty though Smiley

2 and 5 !
I just prefer when there's only two main colors...
