Complimentary Colours at MMM

Hello folks, my Make My Monday post is here a bit later than usual as I woke up on Saturday to find that my dear hubby had generously given me his recent cold which went straight to my sinuses and I've felt so yuck that crafting went out of the window!
I managed to finish off my card for the third of Mynnette's July colour challenges which this week is Complimentary Colours - Yellow and Purple.
My card features another of the cute images drawn by Priyanka of My Heart Pieces who is our sponsor for the month and the winner will receive 5 digital images of their choice.

My patchwork design uses some scraps from my leftovers box - the deeper yellow paper was inked and stamped with a floral design, the lemon and lilac card I embossed with a c-Art-Us rose embossing folder and the lilac polka dot paper is Polka Doodles from the Sugarplum Daisy CD.
I printed the image on to thick cartridge paper and coloured her with Aquamarkers. I die cut her into an oval and stamped flowers round the edge with yellow and purple inks.
I assembled the card as you see, adding a computer generated sentiment.

The Design Team have made a variety of cards for your inspiration and do pop over for a look as the different styles are amazing.

I'm off now to catch up on some more of my DT commitments which have got rather behind now!
Back soon, Fliss xx
