    I didn’t get this quad, but this whole little combination list & detailed breakdown of each look you created is such a great idea. So easy for someone to print out & have in hand so they too can try different combinations of these colors. Very helpful Christine & hopefully something you can do with other palettes/quads in the future. Thanks!
