Emerald Green – colour of the year for 2013

According to Pantone – PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013. Can’t say I’m a massive fan but it does make me think of that gorgeous dress Keira Knightly wore in Atonement. As this dress will never look good on me or most of the female population, I’ve had a peruse through Etsy and found some of the best emerald green items money can buy.

And I’ve used it in the background of one of my new coffee designs. I wasn’t convinced it would work but I’m quite happy with the result.
