Less is More 118...Opposites on the Color Wheel

Thank ysou so much, Chrissie and Jen for showcasing my shaker card from last week's challenge ...I am so thrilled and honored with your recognition!!!
This week's challenge at Less is More is to use two colors opposite each other on the color wheel.  The two colors that shouted out at me were purple and yellow.  I RARELY use purple, so I thought I'd give these colors a go...
I remember seeing a card with cut out squares with rounded corners and was so taken, I asked how the artist did it...she said it was done by a Silhouette.  Ohhhhh...sigh.....I didn't have one (still don't), but just got some nesting dies from Avery Elle that are SQUARES WITH ROUNDED CORNERS!!!   I tried different patterned papers and such, but opted for super clean and simple... simply purple and yellow.  In the pic, the purple flower looks like a different colored purple...the purples are all the same....humm...maybe it's the yellow background?   The centers are punched out circles covered with glossy accents.  The yellow and purple are bazzill papers.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  6. Lisa, I found you on Pinterest, or I should say a card by you that I loved. Have been stalking your blog for about an hour now, love your cards! I read your incedible story about your son too.
    And I was surprized when I read that you were born and raised in Buffalo, I live in North Tonawanda, New York. I use a picture of Niagara Falls on my header all the time, changing it for the different seasons! Will be back to visit, I am now following your blog.
