Color Variations

If you'd like to re-color this design, there are many possibilities. For best results, make sure that color A contrasts with both colors B and C.

When viewing this photo, and all Internet photos, please keep in mind that colors appear differently on different computer monitors; I do attempt to match the colors as well as I can, but that's no guarantee that you are seeing the colors exactly as they appear in real life.
