Secondary Colours at MMM

Hello there everyone, hoping that you all had a good weekend despite the very wet weather and my commiserations to anyone involved in flooding. All we had here was a small one nearby as the rain water drains couldn't cope and flooded the road round the corner from me resulting in me having to drive through it to pick up my daughter from work. My wheel arches got a good wash!
Monday is here again and we have another of Mynnette's Colour Wheel challenges for you over at Make My Monday and this week the theme is Secondary Colours - Orange, Green and Purple so you may need sunglasses for my card as it's rather bright!

I've used one of the sweet images from our sponsor for July, Priyanka of My Heart Pieces and printed her out on to thick cartridge paper then coloured her with various Aquamarkers and cut her out. I set her on an oval mat embossed with the Cuttlebug dots folder.
I then dug out some paper scraps in the challenge colours and layered these up on my card blank, adding some stitched ribbon for texture.
I assembled the card as you see, embellishing with a layered flower and a wooden butterfly coloured with a Promarker to add colour (I was really pleased to see that the wood grain still shows through from underneath). I finished off with a computer generated sentiment, die cut with a Papermania label die, coloured with a Promarker and embellished with pearls.

We had some gorgeous interpretations of last weeks' Primary Colours challenge and can't wait to see what you come up with for this one. If you're stuck for inspiration, the Design Team have some very varied creations to get the creative juices flowing so do pop over for a look.

Have a great day,
Hugs, Fliss xx

I think this is beautifully done Fliss - I like the way you used softer shades for the background and more intense colour for the image and the embellishments. Still raining here :( Vicky x
