Make My Monday Colour Wheel Challenge

Afternoon everyone from a dull, drizzly London, although Mister Blue Sky is supposed to be here for the weekend! That song is driving me mad I love it but we have sung it so much this term and now it's on the British Gas advert!! Maybe we sang it too much and frightened him off:)
Anyway back to the challenge. I moaned about the colours last week and came in the Top 3 and I can't say I love this weeks colours either! This week it's complimentary colours of :

Now let me think, when was the last time I wore these colours? 1964 maybe:)
Just joking Mynnette! I quite liked it once I started thinking about what to do. Here is my card, what do you think?

White base card
Coredinations in purple and yellow
Anna Griffin punch
Free stamp from Creativity mag
SeeDee sentiment and brad

I masked the first stamped image and stamped the skirt again for extra fullness. I coloured with PM's and added gold glitter with my glue pen and fussy cut and mounted with pinflair.
Thanks for visiting and hopefully leaving a comment:)

Hi Valerie, Congratulations on your top three card, YAY!! This new card is just as lovely, the colours work really well, I love the young lady's dress it has a Spanish feel:0)
Shame about the weather, perhaps it'll brighten up later, have a great weekend , hugs Gay xxx

Love your image, Val. Great job with the masking, the skirt of your dress looks so pretty. I love your layered border, too.

Miserable day here again. Grey skies and drizzle. Hope it's better for all of us tomorrow. Enjoy a lovely weekend...whatever the weather x

Great card Val - goes so well with these colours - Gay was right about the Spanish feel. I got this set as well but haven't used it yet. Love the skirt and the punched borders.
